Resumo da atividade

RRLAB ( seeks to understand how future environmental changes, such as climate change and ocean acidification, affect marine biodiversity. Future changes in ocean's chemistry, temperature and oxygen levels (hypoxia) are predicted to dictate negative physiological responses at organism-level, and drive, at community-level, profound impacts on diversity and biogeography.
