An extreme climatic event alters marine ecosystem structure in a global biodiversity hotspot
In 2011 the waters along the west coast of Australia—a global hotspot of biodiversity—experienced an unprecedented (in recorded times) warming event with warming anomalies of 2–4 °C that persistedExpand

A decade of climate change experiments on marine organisms: Procedures, patterns and problems
The first decade of the new millennium saw a flurry of experiments to establish a mechanistic understanding of how climate change might transform the global biota, including marine organisms.Expand

Climate-driven regime shift of a temperate marine ecosystem
No turning back? Ecosystems over time have endured much disturbance, yet they tend to remain intact, a characteristic we call resilience. Though many systems have been lost and destroyed, for systemsExpand

Decreasing resilience of kelp beds along a latitudinal temperature gradient: potential implications for a warmer future.
Successful mitigation of negative effects of global warming will depend on understanding the link between physiological and ecological responses of key species. We show that while metabolicExpand

A hierarchical approach to defining marine heatwaves
Marine heatwaves (MHWs) have been observed around the world and are expected to increase in intensity and frequency under anthropogenic climate change. A variety of impacts have been associated withExpand

Biodiversity redistribution under climate change: Impacts on ecosystems and human well-being
Consequences of shifting species distributions Climate change is causing geographical redistribution of plant and animal species globally. These distributional shifts are leading to new ecosystemsExpand

Seaweed Communities in Retreat from Ocean Warming
In recent decades, global climate change [1] has caused profound biological changes across the planet [2-6]. However, there is a great disparity in the strength of evidence among different ecosystemsExpand

Impacts of climate change in a global hotspot for temperate marine biodiversity and ocean warming
Temperate Australia is a global hotspot for marine biodiversity and its waters have experienced well-above global average rates of ocean warming. We review the observed impacts of climate changeExpand

Species traits and climate velocity explain geographic range shifts in an ocean-warming hotspot.
Species' ranges are shifting globally in response to climate warming, with substantial variability among taxa, even within regions. Relationships between range dynamics and intrinsic species traitsExpand

The tropicalization of temperate marine ecosystems: climate-mediated changes in herbivory and community phase shifts
Climate-driven changes in biotic interactions can profoundly alter ecological communities, particularly when they impact foundation species. In marine systems, changes in herbivory and the consequentExpand
