"Brisbane: One of the most unfortunate effects of climate change is the impact
it has on the species of marine life. University of Queensland researchers and
global marine experts reviewed marine biology literature and categorised a wide
range of threats – from climate change to pollution, to fishing – faced by more
than 45,000 species and developed a framework.
The framework has been formed for identifying the most vulnerable marine
species. It will boost global conservation and policy efforts against
anthropogenic climate change. The research has been published in ‘Ecosphere’.
Dr Nathalie Butt from UQ’s School of Earth and Environmental Sciences said the
research revealed the most endangered species from all threats."
