Biogeochemical fluxes through microzooplankton

first_img[1] Microzooplankton ingest a significant fraction of primary production in the ocean and thus remineralize nutrients and stimulate regenerated primary production. We synthesized observations on microzooplankton carbon-specific grazing rate, partitioning of grazed material, respiration rate, microzooplankton biomass, microzooplankton-mediated phytoplankton mortality rate, and phytoplankton growth rate. We used these observations to parameterize and evaluate the microzooplankton compartment in a global biogeochemical model that represents five plankton functional types. Microzooplankton biomasses predicted in this simulation are closer to the independently derived evaluation data than in the previous model version. Most rates, including primary production, microzooplankton grazing, and export of sinking detritus are within observational constraints. However, the model underestimates microzooplankton and mesozooplankton biomasses and chlorophyll concentrations. Thus, we propose that sufficient carbon enters the model ecosystem, but insufficient carbon is retained. For microzooplankton, the low retention of carbon could be improved by parameterizing the model with ciliate gross growth efficiency only, indicating that ciliates may contribute more to microzooplankton activity than their biomass contribution suggests. By taking into account the model underestimation of biomass, we estimate that the ocean inventory of microzooplankton biomass is 0.24 Pg C (a range of 0.14-0.33 Pg C), which is similar to the biomass of mesozooplankton.last_img read more

Seasonal and spatial influences on gene expression in Antarctic krill Euphausia superba

first_imgThe high latitudes inhabited by Antarctic krill Euphausia superba Dana are characterised by extreme changes in seasonal conditions, with very low food availability, long periods of darkness and a massive expansion of sea ice in autumn and winter. How krill adapt to these conditionshas yet to be determined, and it was the purpose of this study to gain more insight by investigating the differences between summer and winter krill populations at the molecular level. To achieve this, we used a cDNA microarray to compare gene expression between female adult krillcaught during summer and winter near the Antarctic Peninsula (60° S), and between Peninsula krill and krill caught near South Georgia (54° S) during the same winter. The Peninsula seasonal comparison showed up-regulation in summer krill of genes involved in feeding and digestion, respiration, motor activity and immunity. Summer krill also showed evidence of increased vitellogenesis, with an insulin-related peptide up-regulated and neuroparsin down-regulated. The comparison between the different overwintering locations showed an up-regulation in the SouthGeorgia krill of genes involved in feeding and digestion, and immunity. There was, however, no differential expression of genes involved in respiration, motor activity or vitellogenesis, suggesting that despite the above differences, both populations of overwintering krill were in a quiescent state. This study shows how krill physiology changes seasonally at the molecular level and howthese changes are flexible according to the overwintering environment.last_img read more

New eviction hurdles causing significant court delays, claims expert

first_imgHome » News » New eviction hurdles causing significant court delays, claims expert previous nextRegulation & LawNew eviction hurdles causing significant court delays, claims expertPaul Shamplina says the Review Hearings brought in by the government recently are proving to be a big hurdle for agents and landlords to leap.Nigel Lewis1st December 20202 Comments775 Views The government’s decision to force letting agents to complete a preliminary hearing before they apply for a court date for possession is causing substantial delays, a leading evictions specialist has said.The Review Hearings have been an additional hurdle for agents and landlords since the government reopened the courts for evictions on September 20th.The official reason for this was to help courts prioritise the most urgent cases, but eviction expert Paul Shamplina also believes it was designed to put another roadblock in the way and deter all but the most determined property owners and managers.In response, Shamplina’s company Landlord Action has set up a specialist team to help.The purpose of the new Review Hearing, which is carried out over the phone, is to determine whether the landlord’s case should proceed to a substantive hearing at a later date.But to determine this, solicitors are required to provide a huge amount of paperwork.This includes the claims form, particulars of the claim, rent statements for the last two years, daily rate of rent and interest, the tenancy agreement, statements setting out previous attempts to recover arrears and the effects of Covid on both the landlord and tenant.This bundle must be filed via email and a copy issued to the tenants 14 days prior to the review hearing. If it is not filed, cases can be struck out.“Whether a case proceeds as priority to a Substantive Hearing will be determined by the evidence submitted prior to the hearing so there is no margin for error,” says Shamplina (pictured).“We are doing everything we can to minimise this delay but it is unexpected additional work, which then has to replicated for the Substantive Hearing.Read more about recent evictions changes.Review Hearings Landlord Action Paul Shamplina evictions December 1, 2020Nigel Lewis2 commentsJames Thompson, Borrels Borrels 2nd December 2020 at 4:22 pmI agree, the Review Hearing is simply a ‘trip wire’ to throw out applications for possessions from Landlords.In addition, I can foresee there being many thousands of Landlords who haven’t been fully compliant who seek possession, only to find themselves with a non-Housing Act tenancy and potentially a sitting tenant. Those who are fully complaint will leave the sector and invest elsewhere.This constant bullying of decent and financial prudent Landlords will not solve the housing crisis in the UK; in fact it will worsen it considerably, as Landlords sell up in their droves. The most most vulnerable in society who need private Landlords will no longer be afforded the support from the PRS that they currently enjoy.Tenant support groups and the PC politics are sleep walking into a housing disaster….and all of their own making.Log in to ReplyPossession Friend, Possession Friend Possession Friend 2nd December 2020 at 3:40 pmThe Review Hearing is only a Delay and attempt to dispose of as many cases so the Tenants don’t end up the Local Authorities responsibility for accommodation.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

USCG Cutter Bertholf Returns to Homeport

first_img USCG Cutter Bertholf Returns to Homeport View post tag: News by topic Authorities View post tag: USCG The crew of an Alameda-based US Coast Guard cutter returned to its homeport Friday after the cutter and its crew seized more than $188 million worth of illegal narcotics during four and a half months of counter-drug operations.The Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf was deployed to the Eastern Pacific in support of Joint Interagency Task Force-South, operating off the coast of Central and South America. Bertholf’s crew stopped and seized nine vessels suspected of drug smuggling, detaining 24 suspected narco-traffickers and recovering over 12,500 pounds of illegal narcotics.To achieve such success in interdicting illegal narcotics, the crew of Bertholf works closely with local partner nations as well as Department of Defense assets and other U.S. agencies to detect and identify suspicious vessels. Upon locating such vessels, the crew launches law enforcement teams in small boats to stop and investigate the suspected smugglers. Bertholf also uses embarked aviation assets as a force multiplier to extend its reach.Bertholf , the first of the Coast Guard’s newest and most capable multi-mission cutters, operates from South America to the Arctic. Bertholf’s speed, range, and endurance enable the cutter to conduct search and rescue, protect resources, interdict smuggling, and perform other Coast Guard missions, intercepting threats before they reach the U.S. mainland.[mappress mapid=”16004″]Image: USCG May 18, 2015 View post tag: Naval View post tag: Cuttercenter_img Share this article View post tag: americas View post tag: Navy View post tag: Bertholf Back to overview,Home naval-today USCG Cutter Bertholf Returns to Homeport View post tag: Alamedalast_img read more

Costa Rican security forces have a new plane, thanks to narco-traffickers

first_imgOn October 23, Martin Godoy, the chief prosecutor in the state of Michoácan, announced that security forces had captured La Tuta’s ex-wife, Ana Patiño López. The previous day, police had arrested Sayonara Gómez, their daughter. Previously their two sons, Huber Gomez and Luis Servando, had also been captured. The MSP 020 is the lone Costa Rican police plane that can fly to Isla del Coco, a remote island in the Pacific Ocean. The plane allows authorities to get to the islands in 90 minutes, instead of the 36 hours it takes to get there by boat. By Dialogo October 30, 2014 The recording comes only days after multiple arrests of La Tuta’s family and alleged associates. Knights Templar leader ‘La Tuta’ calls himself a criminal “I am convinced that one day I will have to pay, and let it be [with my] death,” he said, according to an audio recording posted on the Internet on October 28. “I repeat: I don’t ask clemency or benevolence for myself. I am a criminal, I acknowledge that I did wrong, I will have to pay.” The country’s Public Security Ministry (MSP) repainted the plane, named it the MSP 020, and is using it to conduct anti-narcotics patrols. The twin-turbo aircraft is worth millions of dollars; about 20 countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, and Colombia, have used a version of this plane in a security or defense role.

Costa Rican security forces have destroyed the metric ton of cocaine they seized aboard a King Air F90 – but have decided to put the plane to good use. The recording comes only days after multiple arrests of La Tuta’s family and alleged associates. “Costa Rica today has an air fleet that for the first time has the ability to carry out an aerial patrol to Isla del Coco,” Costa Rican Public Security Minister Celso Gamboa Sánchez said in a prepared statement. “This is the first time that the Public Security Ministry has reached 22,000 feet with its own resources.” Federal law enforcement officials suspect El Tucan of leading several attacks against security forces. In June 2013, he allegedly led an attack against intelligence officers and federal troops in the municipality of Los Reyes. In that incident, Knights Templar used fragmentation grenades to attack a hotel where security forces were staying. And just a few days earlier, on October 18, Federal Police (PF) agents captured La Tuta’s alleged close associate Alberto Romero Rodríguez – also known as “El Tucan” – in the wealthy La Condesa district of Mexico City. He had a handgun and two pounds of what appeared to be synthetic drugs when captured. In January, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto deployed FP agents and soldiers to Michoácan to confront the Knights Templar, which engages in drug trafficking, assassinations, extortion, and kidnapping.
