2000-liter tank ‘mini ecosystems’ predict a strange oceanic future

For one thing: Sharks might become… gentler?   Climate change is happening. Climate change is probably bad. But what does climate change actually do to ecosystems? We really don’t know—yet. But researchers at Australia’s University of Adelaide think they’ve figured out a way to predict the climate change future, by constructing 2,000 liter tanks replete […]
