Event Description

Full Description:
The impacts of climate change on the oceans and atmosphere are well established. However, our understanding of how climate change affects marine life is limited. Dr Poloczanska led a group that reviewed all observed impacts of climate change to ocean ecosystems. They found pervasive effects of climate change on marine life including changes in abundance, distribution, communities and the seasonal timing of events. Impacts occurred at all levels of the food web, from ocean plants to top predators. What's more, they occur across all oceans, from the poles to the tropics. Overwhelmingly, observations of ocean life show changes that are consistent with the expected responses to climate change. This seminar will show how climate change has already had a significant impact on ocean ecosystems.
