Peixes usam sinais químicos na urina para resolver disputas e excitar rivais
Num estudo recentemente publicado na revista Scientific Reports, um grupo de investigadores do Centro de Ciências do Mar, dá conta de que o peixe tilápia moçambicana usa estes sinais para reduzir a violência nos combates.
Bem-vindos!
O CCMAR recebeu ontem a visita dos novos alunos de Biologia e Biologia Marinha (2017/2018). Mostrámos os nossos laboratórios, o nosso Centro de Mergulho Científico e demos as boas-vindas aos caloiros que este ano ingressaram na UAlg.

Abstract

The Ocean Revival project, aimed the deliberate sinking of four decommissioned warships of the Portuguese Navy, for touristic purposes.
One of the constraints arising from the environmental licenses was the implementation of a biodiversity monitoring program, for the
biodiversity that was installed on artificial reefs.
In this talk, I will present the project as a whole, firstly its mission, and the steps taken until the sinking. Then, the strategy for monitoring
biodiversity and the results obtained so far will be highlighted.
The experience gained was transposed to similar projects, such as the recent sinking of a corvette on the island of Porto Santo, where a similar approach was used, reinforcing the position of the Ocean Revival project as a benchmark.
