Climate change is causing marine life changes quicker than expected

Climate change is causing marine life changes quicker than expected

It was originally thought that climate change would see a much more rapid relocation of land species than of ocean life as the temperature rise in oceans would be slower. However, this way of thinking is beginning to change based on new research that has been published in Science magazine. Dr Elvira Poloczanska is from CSIRO's Climate Adaptation Flagship and is the co-author of the paper. She says, "Analyses of global temperature found that the rate at which marine life needs to relocate is as fast, or in some places faster, than for land species. This is despite ocean warming being three times slower than land." She says that an increasing number of ocean life species are changing breeding, spawning and migration cycles based on climate change . She continued to explain that just a one degree increase in the temperature of the World's oceans could mean that marine animals...
