  • Leverhulme-Royal Society Africa Award 25 May 2010 Climate change, overfishing, dam construction and water abstraction all threaten the river fish species of sub-Saharan Africa. By reconstructing the evolutionary history of Tanzanian river fishes a new project, led by Dr Martin Genner, will identify catchments and species of conservation importance. The research will be in collaboration with Dr Ben Ngatunga of the Tanzanian Fisheries Research Institute, and Prof. George Turner of Bangor University. The project will provide capacity-building training in research to Tanzanian scientists, and is funded by the Leverhulme Trust - Royal Society Africa Award scheme.
  • Baby corals dance their way home 18 May 2010 Baby corals find their way home in their first days as free-swimming larvae by listening to the noise of animals on the reef and actively swimming towards it, an international team of researchers working in the Caribbean has discovered. These findings raise new concerns for the future of coral reefs as increasing human noise pollution in the world’s oceans is masking reef sounds.
