As greenhouse gas emissions continue to warm the world’s oceans, marine biodiversity could be on track to plummet within the next few centuries to levels not seen since the extinction of the dinosaurs, according to a recent study in the journal Science by Princeton University researchers.
Relationships between body size and temperature are widely observed in laboratory experiments and the geological record of marine species, but a predictive theory is lacking.
