Climate Change and Marine Food-Web Structures

Changing climates affect biodiversity in a number of different ways including range shifts, reorganizing local communities, and even extinctions. Marine species are not just affected by abiotic conditions such as temperature and salinity. They are connected in intricate food-web networks through competition, predation, parasitism, etc. If one species is affected, it will inevitably affect many others.

Bumblebees and Climate Change

Bumblebees are important global providers of ecological services. This study used more than 360,000 GBIF-mediated occurrence records from Europe and North America to evaluate the impacts of climate change on the future of the bumblebee.
