A study by an international research team recently published in Science describes a new species of a giant ichthyosaur from the early Middle Triassic. They also show that body size evolution in ichthyosaurs was faster than in whales. CBA coordinator Lene Liebe Delsett has co-authored a Perspective article about the study.

CBA centre coordinator Lene Liebe Delsett has launched a new book this week. It is in Norwegian and called Brennmaneteffekten – Hvordan går det med den norske naturen? (ENG: The Jellyfish effect – Is the Norwegian nature doing well?), published by Spartacus.
Ecological memory recognises the importance of previous stress encounters in promoting community tolerance and thereby enhances ecosystem stability, provided that gained tolerances are preserved during non-stress periods.
In a recent study in Marine Pollution Bulletin, Xue Lin and colleagues looked at the distribution and ecological risks of one plastic polymer (PET) and one phthalate plasticizer (DEHP) in the Jiaozhou Bay in China. CBA professor Rolf D. Vogt is one of the co-authors.
In a new review paper, researchers have summarized the evidence for Arctic climate change and the effects on the carbon cycle. They also re-evaluated some of the observational evidence for changing Arctic carbon budgets. CBA scientist Frans-Jan Parmentier is a co-author of the study, which was published in Current Climate Change Reports.
