Retributivist accounts of punishment maintain that it is right to punish wrongdoers, even if the punishment has no future benefits. Research in experimental economics indicates that people are…
Man and the Last Great Wilderness: Human Impact on the Deep Sea
- Environmental SciencePloS one
The analysis shows how the most significant anthropogenic activities that affect the deep sea have evolved from mainly disposal to exploitation and predicts that from now and into the future, increases in atmospheric CO2 and facets of climate change will have the most impact on deep-sea habitats and their fauna.
High seas marine protected areas : concept and discourse analysis
- Environmental Science
The notion of creating marine protected areas (MPAs) in the high seas has been hailed as “an idea whose time has come”, and advocates are calling for them to be part of a global representative system…
Benthic biology time-series in the deep sea: indicators of change
- Environmental Science
The responsiveness of benthic biological communities to climatic drivers and shifts makes them powerful indicators of biogeochemical and other environmental change in the oceans. In addition, benthic…
Assessment of decadal-scale ecological change at a deep Mid-Atlantic hydrothermal vent and reproductive time-series in the shrimp Rimicaris exoculata
- Environmental ScienceJournal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom
There is a constancy in the identity, distribution and abundance of dominant species at TAG that contrasts with other vent sites where quantitative time-series have been established, and there is no evidence of a decline in the extent of shrimp aggregations at the central black smokers of TAG.
Biologists do not pose a threat to deep-sea vents
India has an opportunity to establish a regional warning centre for the Indian ocean, thus ending its self-imposed isolation in sharing seismic data, and has the communications infrastructure and the scientific talent to serve its citizens and the international community.
