Book Description. Global climate change affects productivity and species composition of freshwater and marine aquatic ecosystems by raising temperatures, ocean acidification, excessive solar UV and visible radiation.
Ecosystems include aquatic–marine and freshwater and terrestrial –forest, desert, grassland, and mountain. National Geographic explains a bit more about ecosystems in this article. The five major land habitats include deciduous forest, coniferous forest, savanna, tropical rain forest, desert, and tundra.
