Recent ecological change in ancient lakes
Ancient lakes are among the best archivists of past environmental change, having experienced more than one full glacial cycle, a wide range of climatic conditions, tectonic events, and long…

It is demonstrated that non-prescription drugs and antibiotics dominated PPCP abstracts, appearing in 51% and 39% of reviewed abstracts respectively, in comparison to hormones, prescription drugs, fragrances, and antioxidants, which can all elicit physiological and ecological responses even at low concentrations.
Fluid inclusion record of the hypozonal orogenic Renco gold deposit (Zimbabwe) during the retrograde P–T evolution
Abstract.The hypozonal Renco gold deposit in Zimbabwe is hosted by a shear zone system cutting granulite-facies enderbites. The geologic history of the region testifies to a polyphase…
Intersexual differences of heat shock response between two amphipods (Eulimnogammarus verrucosus and Eulimnogammarus cyaneus) in Lake Baikal
The results demonstrate that females tend to be more sensitive to an acute thermal stimulus than males, most likely because females allocate significant energy to reproduction and less to heat shock response, evidenced by females’ significantly lower LT50time.

Rotifers’ relatively high reproductive rate may present a mechanism to withstand predation should copepod’s preferred nauplii prey become less abundant in a warmer Baikal.

This study generated models to predict efficacy given venom protein family composition, snake taxonomic family, bacterial Gram stain, bacterial morphology, and bacterial respiration strategy, and suggested future research trajectories for antibacterial properties in snake venom by offering hypotheses for a variety of taxa.
Virtual Summit: Incorporating Data Science and Open Science in Aquatic Research
This virtual summit was intended to showcase how limnologists and oceanographers work with big data, expand modeling frameworks, develop tools and software for the larger community, and inform natural resource management and monitoring in 2020.
