Tiny crustaceans could play a crucial role in climate regulation

6 mins read

The FINANCIAL -- Understanding the feeding habits of zooplankton has the potential to dramatically improve the ability of scientists to predict changes in ocean carbon storage and our future climate, a new study has found.The atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) continues to increase, year on year, playing a major role in warming the oceans and the surface of the Earth. This in turn wreaks havoc with global climate by changing weather patterns that lead to a diverse and significant range of threats such as rising sea levels, intense heat waves, powerful storms, the breakdown of ecosystems and widespread famine.…
