Impact of climate change on marine pelagic phenology and trophic mismatch
It is shown that not only is the marine pelagic community responding to climate changes, but also that the level of response differs throughout the community and the seasonal cycle, leading to a mismatch between trophic levels and functional groups. Expand
The jellyfish joyride: causes, consequences and management responses to a more gelatinous future.
Mounting evidence suggests that the structure of pelagic ecosystems can change rapidly from one that is dominated by fish to a less desirable gelatinous state, with lasting ecological, economic and social consequences. Expand
Global imprint of climate change on marine life
Research that combines all available studies of biological responses to regional and global climate change shows that 81–83% of all observations were consistent with the expected impacts of climateExpand
The Pace of Shifting Climate in Marine and Terrestrial Ecosystems
Two measures of thermal shifts from analyses of global temperatures over the past 50 years are used to describe the pace of climate change that species should track: the velocity ofClimate change (geographic shifts of isotherms over time) and the shift in seasonal timing of temperatures. Expand
Climate change and marine plankton.
The interactions between climate change and plankton communities are reviewed, focusing on systematic changes in plankton community structure, abundance, distribution and phenology over recent decades, to consider the potential socioeconomic impacts. Expand
Climate Impact on Plankton Ecosystems in the Northeast Atlantic
Future warming is likely to alter the spatial distribution of primary and secondary pelagic production, affecting ecosystem services and placing additional stress on already-depleted fish and mammal populations. Expand
In hot water: zooplankton and climate change
An overview is provided of the observed and potential future responses of zooplankton communities to global warming. I begin by describing the importance of zooplankton in ocean ecosystems and theExpand
Biology, ecology and conservation of the Mobulidae.
A comparative synthesis of the biology and ecology of mobulids was conducted to examine their evolution, taxonomy, distribution, population trends, movements and aggregation, reproduction, growth and longevity, feeding, natural mortality and direct and indirect anthropogenic threats. Expand
Using continuous plankton recorder data
A critical look at how best to use CPR data, including descriptions of each CPR taxonomic entity, the idiosyncrasies associated with counting many of the taxa, the logic behind taxonomic changes in the Survey, and recommendations on choosing the spatial and temporal scale of study are taken. Expand
Pelagic protected areas: the missing dimension in ocean conservation.
It is argued that recent advances across conservation, oceanography and fisheries science provide the evidence, tools and information to address criticisms and confirm MPAs as defensible and feasible instruments for pelagic conservation. Expand
