SONATA FOR TELEOSTS: FISH SOUNDS AS PROXIES TO LEARN ABOUT THE DIVERSITY OF SPECIES

An  international  team  led  by  researchers  from  the University  of Liège used underwater audio recordings for understanding fish diversity in the Mediterranean Sea.  The research team included a MSCA-COFUND postdoctoral fellow (Dr. Marta Bolgan) based in the European leading laboratory in the field of functional morphology of fish sound production mechanisms (MORFONCT; Prof. Eric Parmentier) and […]

PLASTIC MICROBEADS: MAKE A RESPONSIBLE CHOICE WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE.

Microplastics (<5 mm in their longer dimension) have become ubiquitous within our aquatic environments and are understood to be the most abundant type of plastic in the ocean. Microplastics  have been found almost everywhere scientists have sampled; from near-shore environments to the open ocean, within sediments of estuaries and deep sea waters and in freshwater […]
