Global warming will reduce ocean productivity, marine life

...he ocean surface where there is enough sunlight to sustain photosynthesis, makes them very responsive to changes in climate, Behrenfeld said. This was why we could relate productivity changes to climate variability in only a 10-year record. Such connections would be much harder to detect from space for terre...

Mixing exploitation and conservation: A recipe for disaster

...98 to 2002, the percentage of blocks that couldn't sustain knots increased from 66% to 87%--all attributable to dredging in previously suitable sites. Reduced prey density caused some of this degradation, but most stemmed from declines in both cockle density and quality. The authors caught and color-bande...

End of deforestation in view? Experts advance new way to size up global forest resources
