Movement of marine life follows speed and direction of climate change
Description: Scientists expect climate change and warmer oceans to push the fish that people rely on for food and income into new territory. Predictions of where and when species will relocate, however, are based on broad expectations about how animals will move and have often not played out in nature. New research shows that the trick to more precise forecasts is to follow local temperature changes. [Source: Princeton University]
