As ocean temperatures rise due to climate change, marine organisms have two options: adapt to warmer conditions or relocate to cooler, higher latitude waters.
Climate change over the 21st century will significantly alter an important oceanographic process that regulates the productivity of fisheries and marine ecosystems, according to an interdisciplinary research team led by Northeastern University.
Professor Brian Helmuth, deeply involved in the Urban Coastal Sustainability Initiative, shares his thoughts on how looking at climate change in a different way will be helpful.
Professor Brian Helmuth and colleagues have developed a new approach designed to avoid generalizations that fail to capture variability in nature.
Fear of predators can change prey behavior, shaping entire ecological communities. But MSC research suggests that the impact of predators on their prey may change with temperature.
