- ... Concern over the potential impacts of increased temperature on marine turtles, which have temperature dependent sex determination, has resulted in an increase in research that predicts the sex ratio of marine turtle hatchlings under various scenarios of climate change. To accurately understand the projected impacts from global warming, it is necessary to understand the sex ratio baseline in advanc ...

- ... Carbon flow through ecosystems is determined by the nature, availability and incorporation of basal resources (BRs) to higher trophic levels of food webs. The occurrence of abundant supplementary BR often diversifies trophic niches within food webs. Blooms of opportunistic macroalgae, which may act as additional BRs, have increased in intensity, and are expected to amplify further because of globa ...
