Hippo Dung Revealed As Important Food Source In African Rivers

Few studies have looked at the effects hippos have on the water quality of streams. And the reason is simple: Studying near hippos isn’t safe. “It’s an ornery animal to work with,” said Doug McCauley, assistant professor of ecology, evolution and marine biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who just completed a study measuring the effects of hippo dung on the ecosystem of an African river. “When you’re sampling in a stream with salmon, there’s no threat that a salmon would bite you in half.” But for studies near gigantic hippos, the threat of danger is very real.

Plankton Portal enlists public to classify thousands of zooplankton images

Zooplankton drifts through the ocean, often ignored by the public in favor of more charismatic marine organisms farther up the food chain. A new crowdsourced project aims to change that, giving anyone a closer look at small and intricate zooplankton. PlanktonPortal.org features 900,000 high resolution images of zooplankton and tasks the public to identify them as part of data processing for a collaborative study, based out of the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Researchers hope the project will tell them more about zooplankton behavior, grouping and interaction.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.
