Recent research shows that ocean water off southern California has warmed by 2-3 degrees F (1-1.5 degrees C) over the past four decades, possibly due to the green house effect. This warming has led indirectly to a depletion of nutrients in the water and thus a decline in photosynthetic protists such as diatoms. What effects is this warming likely to have for the life in the oceans?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:17 pm ad1c9bdddf
The important point of this question is that the warming led to a reduction in the food supply for diatoms, causing their numbers to decline. This means that ...
