    Global warming could be driving the North Sea ecosystem to the brink of collapse. That stark warning comes from an analysis of nearly half a century of data on the abundance of plankton. Rising temperatures are having a major effect on when these marine animals breed, which in turn is having a...

    Marine fishes and invertebrates respond to ocean warming through distribution shifts, generally to higher latitudes and deeper waters. Consequently, fisheries should be affected by 'tropicalization' of catch (increasing dominance of warm-water species). However, a signature of such...

    Global warming has a significant impact on the regional scale on the Arctic Ocean and surrounding coastal zones (i.e., Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Norway and Russia). The recent increase in air temperature has resulted in increased precipitation along the drainage basins of Arctic rivers. It has...
