Shipwrecks Off North Carolina, U.S. Coast Harbor Tropical Migrants

Shipwrecks and sunken structures off the North Carolina coast may act as stepping stones for tropical fish searching for favorable habitats at or beyond the edge of their normal geographic range. A ... read more

Oxygen Linked With the Boom and Bust of Early Animal Evolution

Extreme fluctuations in atmospheric oxygen levels corresponded with evolutionary surges and extinctions in animal biodiversity during the Cambrian explosion, finds a new ... read more
