Effects of climate-change driven gradual and acute temperature changes on shark and ray species

Effects of climate-change driven gradual and acute temperature changes on shark and ray species Geoffrey J. Osgood, Easton R. White, Julia K. Baum ABSTRACT: Climate change is altering distributions and abundances of marine species through both gradual and acute changes in temperature and productivity. Due to their high mobility and metabolic rates, elasmobranchs (sharks and
