Climate models suggest major changes in coastal marine ecosystems

By the end of the 21st cen­tury, cli­mate change will sig­nif­i­cantly alter an impor­tant oceano­graphic process that reg­u­lates the pro­duc­tivity of fish­eries and marine ecosys­tems, North­eastern researchers report in a new paper in Nature. These changes are likely to influ­ence the geo­graphic dis­tri­b­u­tion of marine biodiversity.
