New findings published in PLOS ONE examine the ongoing danger to the harbor porpoises (Phocoena phocoena), who are struggling to successfully reproduce as a result of chemical pollutants lurking in European waters.
Europeans may have unknowingly helped the spread of an invasive plant species in the United States. Researchers have found that human-caused factors are far more important to the spread of an invasive species than the traits that the species may possess.
Scientists have discovered that melting sea ice in the Iceland and Greenland Seas may be altering the circulation of warm and cold water in the Atlantic Ocean which could, in turn, change the climate in Europe.

Findings presented at EuroHeartCare, the official annual meeting of the Council on Cardiovascular Nursing and Allied Professions of the European Society of Cardiology, reveal that not getting enough sleep can double the risk of heart attack and quadruple the risk of stroke.
