Prof Ivan Nagelkerken spoke to Radio Adelaide this week about a new paper he is an author on: the publication titled Climate change could drive marine food web collapse through altered trophic flows and cyanobacterial proliferation. This publication is an all Environment Institute effort led by Hadayet Ullah, with Silvan Goldenberg and Damien Fordham.
The effect climate change has on the ocean is well documented with many articles detailing the rising acidity and temperatures. However, the effect on ecoystems or foodwebs as a whole is less documented: as energy moves through a system from the prey to predators.
Listen to Prof Nagelkerken outline the results of the six month study on the Radio Adelaide Website.
