Congrats to Katie, my PhD student 💫for publishing her fourth paper, which examined levels of retinoic acids and their metabolites in the marine environment of Hong Kong. We found higher levels during algal blooms. 🤢 To obtain a free copy of our paper: authors.elsevier.com/c/1fKDf…

Our Marine Scientists from HKU School of Biological Sciences placed “mini-apartments'' on Hong Kong’s seabed for sea creatures to move in, and they seem to like it! scmp.com/news/china/science/… via @scmpnews

Surprising 𝘝𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘢 𝘷𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘢 is divided into left-handed and right-handed populations (or should we say left-sailed and right-sailed). This allows them to sail toward the wind directions more comfortably in different hemispheres. #jellyfish

Wow, CBD COP-15 will move to Montreal in December this year. The extra time has provided time to improve the Post-2020 global biodiversity framework, but with one CBD already effectively missed we must move forwards now

Sexual cannibalism is behaviour in which an individual eats its mate during copulation. The production of eggs requires a consequent energy investment from the mother and to increase the production and survival of the offspring, the male(s) or its body provides rich nutrients.

Lab members @yfw393 & @CSarabian recently participated in a 'silkscreen printing' workshop from @HKUniversity Museum and Art Gallery. And they picked up the HK Wild Boar Project logo as an experimental image! After a couple of trials...👍

Any @HKUSBS students who aren’t sure about whether their studies e.g. on human values, attitudes or behaviour, require human ethics approval - I can offer advice and you’re welcome join/audit my ENVS3402 course which includes a human research ethics application. #AsabEthics

Congrats to Adela for publishing this work! 👏👏We found chemical toxicity to fish would be exacerbated at extremely low and high temperatures, especially at high one 🤒 Chemical exposure can also reduce the thermal tolerance of fish. A link to our paper: authors.elsevier.com/c/1fH8y…
