Effects of temperature stress on ecological processes

Effects of temperature stress on ecological processes
Effects of temperature stress on ecological processes
Temperature is a fundamental determinant of chemical and biological rates, with profound influences on living systems at all levels of organization. Investigating how ocean temperature affects marine ecosystems is critical to understanding consequences of global climate change. This chapter describes influences of temperature on ecological processes from organism to community levels. Specifically we (i) outline global spatial and temporal temperature patterns and projected changes, (ii) examine direct and indirect influences of these temperature variations on marine organisms and consider resulting implications for ecological processes and species distributions, (iii) use examples from several habitats to demonstrate emergent consequences of temperature-driven changes in ecological processes for the structure and function of marine communities, and (iv) highlight the importance of interactions between temperature and other abiotic variables.

Abstract

Temperature is a fundamental determinant of chemical and biological rates, with profound influences on living systems at all levels of organization. Investigating how ocean temperature affects marine ecosystems is critical to understanding consequences of global climate change. This chapter describes influences of temperature on ecological processes from organism to community levels. Specifically we (i) outline global spatial and temporal temperature patterns and projected changes, (ii) examine direct and indirect influences of these temperature variations on marine organisms and consider resulting implications for ecological processes and species distributions, (iii) use examples from several habitats to demonstrate emergent consequences of temperature-driven changes in ecological processes for the structure and function of marine communities, and (iv) highlight the importance of interactions between temperature and other abiotic variables.
