Rising Atmospheric CO2 Levels Affecting Cephalopod Behaviors

Carbon dioxide, CO2, is a waste product for animals, including humans. That means that too much of it can be dangerous. In humans, excessive exposure to CO2 can kill, but in lesser amounts it can also affect the blood's pH level, causing acidemia. Acidemia can cause nerve damage , including hallucinations, delirium, and seizures. Far less is known about the subtler effects of CO2 on cephalopods, but this is in large part because far less is known about cephalopods, generally. However, new research from scientists at James Cook University (JCU) in Australia reveals that rising levels of atmospheric CO2 may cause strange behavioral effects in cephalopods—effects that are likely to be dangerous to them.

Buoy Data Powers Muskegon Lake Hypoxia Research

Sixty years ago, the famous ecologist George Evelyn Hutchinson wrote, “A skillful limnologist can possibly learn more about the nature of a lake from a series of oxygen determinations than from any other chemical data.†Since then, oxygen measurements have only grown more relevant as the problem of hypoxia expands in lakes, oceans and estuaries across the globe.   But ecologists’ ability to measure oxygen has grown too. When Hutchison wrote that in 1957,  the “series of oxygen determinations†produced by a data buoy like the one floating on Muskegon Lake in Michigan was unthinkable.

Long-Term Monitoring Aids Scientists Studying Sea Star Wasting Mystery

Scientists working to solve the mystery of Sea Star Wasting Disease—and to learn more about the possible keystone species Pisaster ochraceus , the ochre sea star—are reaping the benefits of long-term monitoring of the species along the West Coast. Dr. Melissa Miner , a UC Santa Cruz researcher in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, spoke with EM about her two decades of work with the Multi-Agency Rocky Intertidal Network and her recent efforts surrounding the ochre sea star. Keeping an eye on intertidal species In 2013, people began to notice that sea stars all along the West Coast were in the grip of a strange disease. The stars exhibited lesions and quickly succumbed, deteriorating and wasting away.
