Research highlights competing impacts of warm waters and acidification in Nature Paper

Warming waters and ocean acidification could have opposing effects on the movements of tropical fish. Under increasing global warming, tropical fish are escaping warmer seas by extending their habitat ranges towards more temperate waters. But a new study from the University of Adelaide, published in Nature Climate Change, shows that the ocean acidification predicted under […]

Fish sex organs boosted under high-CO2

Research from the University of Adelaide has found that some species of fish will have higher reproductive capacity because of larger sex organs, under the more acidic oceans of the future. Published in PLOS Biology, the researchers say that far from the negative effects expected under the elevated CO2 levels in our oceans predicted for the end […]

Marine food webs struggle as climate change increases sea temperatures

Scientists at the University of Adelaide have found growing evidence that marine ecosystems will not cope well with rising sea temperatures caused by climate change. “Healthy food webs are critical for ecosystems so that the world’s oceans can continue to provide an important source of food for humans,” says lead author Professor Ivan Nagelkerken, from the University […]

A broad diet helps tropical fish survive a range shift due to climate change

The global redistribution of marine and terrestrial species due to climate change is a major concern for conservation planners and resource managers. Now new research, using data from long term surveys of tropical fishes, indicates that traditional studies of this range shift phenomenon largely ignore the sequential nature of species movement. The study, published in […]
