Arctic warming to enable transoceanic species exchange

The Atlantic and Pacific are connected by the Northeast and the Northwest Passage, but unsuitable conditions above the Arctic Circle have thus far prevented the interchange of marine biota between oceans. The present study simulates the spread of species under future climate conditions, creating ecological niche models for 515 fish species based on GBIF-mediated occurrences and climate projections.
