Four new species of giant single-celled organisms discovered on Pacific seafloor

Four new species of giant single-celled organisms discovered on Pacific seafloor

Two new genera and four new species of giant, single-celled xenophyophores (protozoans belonging to a group called the foraminifera) were discovered in the deep Pacific Ocean during a joint project between scientists at the National Oceanography Centre, UK (NOC), the University of Hawai'i, and the University of Geneva. 'Moana' has inspired the name Moanammina for one of the new genera, while the second has been named Abyssalia in recognition of its abyssal habitat.The species were described, based on morphology and genetic data, from specimens collected with the University of Hawai'i's...

Coastal pollution reduces genetic diversity of corals, reef resilience

Coastal pollution reduces genetic diversity of corals, reef resilience

A new study by researchers at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) found that human-induced environmental stressors have a large effect on the genetic composition of coral reef populations in Hawai'i. They confirmed that there is an ongoing loss of sensitive genotypes in nearshore coral populations due to stressors resulting from poor land-use practices and coastal pollution. This reduced genetic diversity compromises reef resilience. The study identified closer genetic relationships between nearshore corals in Maunalua Bay, Oahu and...
