Global marine life is on the move due to sea temperature rises
Global marine life is on the move due to sea temperature rises
A new study from the University of Southampton sheds light on the impact climate change is having on marine environments in a relatively recent global phenomenon known as 'tropicalisation'. In the ocean, tropical species are moving from the equator towards the poles as sea temperatures rise. Meanwhile, temperate species are receding as it gets too warm, they face increased competition for habitat, and new predators arrive on the scene, among other factors.
