Categories: Global Warming, Wildlife and Nature

A scientific study has found global warming benefits smaller aquatic animals at the expense of larger ones. As well as providing less food for larger fish, small fish tend to lay fewer eggs. Put alongside overfishing, this change may provoke dire consequences up and down the food chain - even affecting humans.

The authors - Martin Daufresne, Kathrin Lengfellner and Ulrich Sommer - published their results on July 20, 2009, in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

Member: Wavehunter (William Coffin) I lived in Britain for many years, where I studied politics and international relations and worked in the charity sector. Now I live in Mexico and juggle my time between bringing up a young son, writing science fiction, teaching English and engaging with the global community on-line. I want to learn more about the enormous changes we all face so we might make a peaceful transition to what is bound to be a very different society.
