  • Species cast in marine ecosystems change faster than in terrestrial ecosystems, according to an international study published on 17 October in the journal Science, which analysed data from recent decades.
  • As for the greater volatility of marine ecosystems, particularly in tropical climates, at the outset “species transit is easier, there are fewer borders”.
  • Maria Dornelas noted that catastrophic cases for biodiversity such as the Amazonian wildfires focus a lot of attention, but around the world there are recovering ecosystems, losing species that are replaced, while those leaving one ecosystem may thrive in another zone.
