Science Says Jellyfish Do Not Grow a Backbone - Spineless

Jellyfish could be real-world monsters out to take over the planet. They readily breed in their millions. Many have taken up residence under buildings constructed by Man off the shoreline. Jellies do not need a backbone to strut there stuff. They are dominant without one. A diver attaches sensor giant echizen jellyfish coast Japan. TIM FLANNERY Are jellyfish taking world’s oceans? number recent books documentaries argue are, moreover, they’re doing so our help. In Spineless: Science Jellyfish Art Growing Backbone, self-styled jellyfish journalist Juli Berwald sets discover scientists claims. Yet six-year quest morphs something else, prompting deep introspective life people meets way. For an Austin, Texas-based motthree wife banker, negotiating time family funding various expeditions become significant threats tale. As sets out, Berwald puts questions jellyfish expert Jennifer Purcell. Purcell’s response complex nuanced follows saying: “If dare, kind story … real story.” Berwald researcher, having given up career marine biology become contracted writer scientific textbooks turning jellyfish journalism. But Purcell’s challenge tell full, scientifically complex story jellyfish becomes mantra. world’s oceans being overrun jellyfish given mighty fillip 21st century series events floppy sea creatures triumphed humans. USS Ronald Reagan, mightiest warship US Navy, visiting Brisbane jellyfish clogged cooling systems, bringing nuclear-powered aircraft carrier halt. weekend northern Australia, swimmers stung jellyfish in jellyfish killed 10,000 captive salmon Northern ireland $US2 million loss. crippled power plants, stalled desalination systems wreaked havoc cooling systems. jellyfish crippled entire ecosystems.

Black Sea’s fisheries saved accidental introduction another kind jelly had an ample mouth can engulfl comb jellies: consuming six per cent Black Sea’s comb jelly population a day. Monty Graham researchers struggling make sense data jellyfish numbers being collected worldwide. grant US National Centre Ecological Analysis Synthesis, collating reports covering 70 year period. Berwald if jellyfish fact taking over, he says: ‘‘have an answer couple years.’’ I really concerned getting answer … f..king what?” Before Berwald Other avenues open. Berwald discovers Australian jellyfish expert Rob Cond posted poll asking experts comment jellyfish numbers increasing. Berwald checked results, two yes, onr no, seven undecided — says much number jellyfish experts existence question. As pursues quest, Berwald uncovers fascinating aspects jellyfish behaviour, including fact efficient swimmers ever dicovered. Most their forward motion created pushing water (creating low pressure behind) sucked forward far efficient water push it, marine engineers believe future, vessels advantage method. New understandings jellyfish biology opening huge advances medical science, species promise filled pinhead-sized ‘‘immortal jellyfish’’. dies decomposes, cells escape corpse create jellyfish, extraordinary biology stumbled across student collected Genoa, Italy, forgot put refrigerator weekend. When he returned Monday, jellyfish had decomposed, in place stolons (stalks baby jellyfish bud) creature had reversed life cycle.

If all sounds fantastical, encouraging hear researchers investigating genes switched on immortal jellyfish rejuvenates itself. Jellyfish play unique role ocean’s ecosystems. big enough be eaten fish, small enough stingers eat tiny plankton, so form direct bridge smallest largest creatures ocean.

Our impacts on marine ecosystems now pervasive. large predatory fish taken entire ecosystems disrupted, plastic pollution oceans offers ever places jellyfish reproduce. Towards end project, Berwald got an answer initial question researchers jellyfish sighting database, including Graham, published results their research. Basically, found there evidence jellyfish numbers increasing if all data included. better-quality data used is evidence of increase. Graham question not right ask. ocean full ecosystems, response each unique. In severely affecteds land, jellyfish may well be increasing dramatically courtesy human disturbance.

Weedy Seadragon (phyllopteryx taeniolatus) - Australiana

Weedy seadragon is an Aussie icon.
Weedy Seadragons (phyllopteryx taeniolatus) live only in southern Australian waters. The fish are quite large, growing to 46cm. They are redish with yellow spots and blend in with their surroundings.  Their red, sandy color does not show against the weedy background as they have green weed-like appendages.
Weedy Seadragon phyllopteryx taeniolatus
Seadragon males incubate eggs. A female puts about 200 eggs into a brooding pouch on the male during mating. The male fertilizes the eggs in his pouch. The young take two years to become mature.

When seadragons die they are preserved by bony plates. These can be found washed up on beaches. Yearly rings are "recorded" in their ear bones. They live for five years. Seadragons are a barometer for climate change. It the environment deteriorates many die off.

Two New Species Carrying Irukandji Found in Australia

It never fails to amaze me how new things are discovered on our doorstep when the majority of people think everything is known about nature.  This is particularly true in Australia where a low number of people live on a vast continent.  Some places have not even been visited by humans for thousands of years.

Dr Lisa-Ann Gershwin has identified two species of jellyfish that can carry Irukandji syndrome.  The new species are Keesingia gigas and Malo bella.  Doctor Gershwin works for CSIRO.  There are now 16 species that can cause Irukandji.

Keesingia can grow to 50 cm in bell height.  This is by far the largest jellyfish.  Juvenile leatherjacket fish safely live in its subumbrellar cavity as with the more common medusas.

The two newly documented species have been generally known for some time.  However, they have not been found in Australian waters before.  They could have been present for a long time or maybe they are new, moving here due to climate change and the warming ocean.
