Poorly managed marine fisheries are in trouble around the world, researchers say, while ecosystem-based management is a powerful idea that in theory could help ensure sustainable catches - but too often there’s a gap in translating broad concepts into specific action in the oceans that successfully meets these larger goals. To address that, Mark Hixon, a professor of zoology at Oregon State University, today modified a very old set of rules and issued “Ten Commandments” ... [full story]

Many commercially prized fish from the depths of the world’s oceans are severely threatened by over-fishing and the species’ ability to recover is constrained by the fishes’ long lifespans and low reproductive success, a panel of experts said today at the annual meeting of the American Association of the Advancement of Science. Some of the fish species living at depths greater than 500 meters take decades to reach breeding maturity, so there are no quick-fix ... [full story]

A study being published this week suggests that gas and vapor movement to the top of the magma body may have caused fairly rapid increases in pressure and could have been the triggering mechanism that caused Mount St. Helens to erupt in both 1980 and 2004. Researchers used analysis of the trace element lithium to reach these conclusions, finding that crystals in the erupting lava were highly enriched with lithium in the first few weeks ... [full story]

Sci­en­tists have tra­di­tion­ally as­cribed the first peo­pling of the Amer­i­cas to the Clo­vis cul­ture—big-game hunters thought to have roamed North Amer­i­can plains start­ing around 11,500 years ago. Clo­vis spear- or arrow-heads re­cov­ered from the Gault site, Tex­as. (Cour­te­sy Cen­ter for the Study of the First Amer­i­cans, TAMU) But that idea has been wide­ly chal­lenged in re­cent years. Now, an an­thro­po­l­o­gist has found ev­i­dence he claims could be the fi­nal nail in the cof­fin for the ... [full story]

Chimps in Sen­e­gal are reg­u­lar­ly mak­ing and us­ing spears to hunt oth­er, small pri­ma­tes, with­out hu­man help, ac­cord­ing to re­search led by an an­thro­po­l­o­gist. It’s the first study to re­port reg­u­lar tool use by non-hu­mans while hunt­ing oth­er ver­te­brates, ac­cord­ing to the U.S. Na­tion­al Ge­o­graph­ic So­ci­e­ty, which helped fund the work.
