Predicting ecosystem shifts requires new approaches that integrate the effects of climate change across entire systems.
Most studies that forecast the ecological consequences of climate change target a single species and a single life stage. Depending on climatic impacts on other life stages and on interacting species, however, the results ...
Calcification is not the Achilles' heel of cold-water corals in an acidifying ocean.
Ocean acidification is thought to be a major threat to coral reefs: laboratory evidence and CO2 seep research has shown adverse effects on many coral species, although a few are resilient. There are concerns that cold-water ...
Ocean acidification impairs vermetid reef recruitment.
Vermetids form reefs in sub-tropical and warm-temperate waters that protect coasts from erosion, regulate sediment transport and accumulation, serve as carbon sinks and provide habitat for other species. The gastropods ...
