Due to its position as the principal connector of the majorocean basins, the Southern Ocean strongly impacts climate,sea level, biogeochemical cycles and biological productivityon a global scale. The Southern Ocean influences the globaldistribution and movement of heat and carbon (e.g. Rintoulet al., 2001), and it features a vigorous overturning circulation that drives deep-water carbon and nutrients to the surface and draws down anthropogenic carbon from the atmosphere, with implications for global climate change and large-scale productivity (Sarmiento et al., 2004; le Quere et al., 2007; Meredith et al., 2012). The Southern Ocean exerts a strong influence on sea levels via melting of glacial ice (Rignot and Jacobs, 2002; Rignot et al., 2011), and it encompasses a sea-ice system that provides an important habitat for marine organisms, and which influences surface albedo and air-sea gas and heat exchange (Thomas and Dieckmann, 2002). The Southern Ocean also includes some of the most productive andvulnerable marine ecosystems on Earth, many of which supporteconomically important species.

Sexual biology may be the key to uncovering why Anopheles mosquitoes are unique in their ability to transmit malaria to humans, according to researchers at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health and University of Perugia, Italy. Through analysis of 16 Anopheles genomes, they found that these mosquitoes’ reproductive traits evolved along with their capacity to transmit the Plasmodium parasite that causes malaria. These findings may provide a new target for malaria control, particularly in regions hardest hit by the disease.“Our study is the first to reveal the evolutionary dynamics between the sexes that are likely responsible for shaping the ability of Anopheles mosquitoes to transmit malaria to humans,” said senior author Flaminia Catteruccia, associate professor of immunology and infectious diseases at Harvard Chan School and University of Perugia.The study was published online February 26, 2015 in Science.Anopheles mosquitoes are the only mosquitoes capable of transmitting human malaria; however, the species within this genus vary widely in their ability to do so, for reasons that remain unknown. The researchers analyzed nine globally dispersed Anopheles species, enabling reconstruction of the evolutionary history of their reproductive traits and capacity to transmit malaria.They found that two key male reproductive traits in Anopheles are acquired and evolved together over time. The researchers also demonstrated that the evolution of these male traits drove reciprocal adaptations in females strongly linked to the mosquitos’ capacity to transmit malaria. Read Full Story
