Stockholm University, Faculty of Science, Department of Systems Ecology.
2012 (English)In: Marine Biology, ISSN 0025-3162, E-ISSN 1432-1793, Vol. 159, no 11, 2367-2377 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article serves as an introduction to this special issue of Marine Biology, but also as a review of the key findings of the AQUASHIFT research program which is the source of the articles published in this issue. AQUASHIFT is an interdisciplinary research program targeted to analyze the response of temperate zone aquatic ecosystems (both marine and freshwater) to global warming. The main conclusions of AQUASHIFT relate to (a) shifts in geographic distribution, (b) shifts in seasonality, (c) temporal mismatch in food chains, (d) biomass responses to warming, (e) responses of body size, (f) harmful bloom intensity, (f), changes of biodiversity, and (g) the dependence of shifts to temperature changes during critical seasonal windows.
