Despite uncertainty in all levels of analysis, recent and long-term changes in our climate point to the distinct possibility that greenhouse gas emissions have altered mean annual temperatures, precipitation and weather patterns. Modeling efforts that use doubled atmospheric CO2 scenarios predict a 1–7°C mean global temperature increase, regional changes in precipitation patterns and storm tracks, and the possibility of “surprises” or sudden irreversible regime shifts. The general effects of… 
Global streamflow and thermal habitats of freshwater fishes under climate change
Climate change will affect future flow and thermal regimes of rivers. This will directly affect freshwater habitats and ecosystem health. In particular fish species, which are strongly adapted to a
The impact of climate change on fisheries in the tropics Lemma
This paper reviews the impacts of climate change on fisheries, with particular reference to the tropics to assess what happens to the aquatic life in different ecosystems as the climate changes. The
Impacts of drought and predicted effects of climate change on fish growth in temperate Australian lakes
Climate change is expected to negatively impact many freshwater environments due to reductions in stream‐flow and increases in temperature. These conditions, however, can already be found today in
Impact of Climate Change and Loss
Although the impacts of climate change on the welfare of individual manatees and dugongs are still uncertain, the effects are likely to be through indirect interactions between meteorological and
Impacts of drought and predicted effects of climate change on fish growth in temperate Australian lakes
Climate change is expected to negatively impact many freshwater environments due to reductions in stream-flow and increases in temperature. These conditions, however, can already be found today in
Vulnerability of stream biota to climate change in mediterranean climate regions: a synthesis of ecological responses and conservation challenges
Freshwater species worldwide are experiencing dramatic declines partly attributable to ongoing climate change. It is expected that the future effects of climate change could be particularly severe in
Forecasting the effects of global change scenarios on bioaccumulation patterns in great lakes species
Climate change will have substantial impacts on biodiversity, particularly for aquatic species. Warming temperatures and changing weather patterns will also remobilize and modify chemical
An assessment of the potential impacts of climate change on freshwater habitats and biota of Indiana, USA
Recent climate-driven, physico-chemical changes documented in aquatic systems throughout the world are expected to intensify in the future. Specifically, changes in key environmental attributes of
Climate Change Simulations Predict Altered Biotic Response in a Thermally Heterogeneous Stream System
TLDR
The results provide a framework for assessing fine-scale (10 s m) thermal heterogeneity and predict shifts in thermal conditions at the watershed and reach scale and create a spatially explicit model of mean daily water temperature.
Observed and predicted impacts of climate change on the estuaries of south-western Australia, a Mediterranean climate region
Regions with a Mediterranean climate are generally predicted to become warmer and drier with climate change. Estuaries in these regions are influenced by a broad range of climate drivers and are

IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON AQUATIC ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONING AND HEALTH 1
ABSTRACT: We review published analyses of the effects of climate change on goods and services provided by freshwater ecosystems in the United States. Climate‐induced changes must be assessed in the
Assessing potential effects of global climate change on tropical freshwater fishes
Climate change will affect both the quality and the quantity of water in freshwater environments. Changes in air temperature and precipitation will alter the annual water temperature cycle and the
Effects of global climate change on marine and estuarine fishes and fisheries
TLDR
There is a need to research the physiology and ecology of marine and estuarine fishes, particularly in the tropics where comparatively little research has been conducted, to make more accurate predictions and forge relevant solutions.
Tools for assessing the impact of climate change on freshwater fish populations
We identify and discuss ways to use existing information on the thermal ecology of freshwater fishes to assess the potential impact of climate change on wild populations of these organisms. Two
Potential Effects of Global Climate Warming on the Growth and Prey Consumption of Great Lakes Fish
Abstract We used fish bioenergetics models to assess the effect ofglobal climate warming on the growth and prey consumption of warm-, cool-, and coldwater fishes at three sites spanning the range of
Temperature‐Oxygen Habitat for Freshwater and Coastal Striped Bass in a Changing Climate
Abstract Habitat space for a fish species is normally constrained by extreme temperatures and low dissolved oxygen concentrations that the fish avoid. Both latitudinal limits to a species' geographic
General Effects of Climate Change on Arctic Fishes and Fish Populations
TLDR
Preparedness to meet challenges of climate change in the Arctic with respect to fish and fisheries is limited due to a dearth of basic knowledge regarding fish biology and habitat interactions in the north, complicated by scaling issues and uncertainty in future climate projections.
Effects of climate warming on fish thermal habitat in streams of the United States
The effects of climate warming on the thermal habitat of 57 species of fish of the U.S. were estimated using results for a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide that were predicted by the Canadian
Increasing risk of great floods in a changing climate
TLDR
The recent emergence of a statistically significant positive trend in risk of great floods is consistent with results from the climate model, and the model suggests that the trend will continue.
