Special Issue: Present status of marine ecosystem and environment in a warming climate.

Dear Colleagues,

Evidences over the past 20 years indicate that marine organisms live in a multistressor environment caused by anthropogenic activities. During last decades industrialization and agriculture have produced an excess of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere generating chemical pollution along with several modifications of the global temperature and ocean pH.  Normally, CO2 is produced by photosynthesis, respiration and biogeochemical processes; however since the time of Industrial Revolution, atmospheric CO2 concentration and related greenhouse effect, have increased due to the fossil fuels burning, inducing a global average temperature elevation with specific increase starting since 1970.  This is alarming for the scientific community due to the possible consequences for a climate change that are already leading to a melt of arctic ice. However the alteration of environmental conditions of marine ecosystems may also exert a negative impact on marine biota inducing physiological and reproductive disorders, failures and even threating the survival of the species.

One of the major aim of climate-change studies is to determine the fate of marine populations.  In this line, many climate scientists are attending now to provide insights on the responses of different marine species to temperature increase by performing experiments either in mesocosms and in field, to clarify what may be the physiological modifications induced by an increased thermal stress.

The scope of this Special Issue is to provide evidences on the adverse effect of global warming on either marine ecosystem or organisms.  Data collected in this issue may represent a new opportunity to answer to main question as what could be the climate change consequences and possibly indicating what anyone could do to face and to solve this warring worldwide problem.
