Adapting to climate driven species redistribution

Summary

Climate-driven species redistribution in the marine environment will affect (and in some cases is already affecting) productivity, food-web structure, the dominance and function of biogenic ecosystem engineers, as well as local and regional-scale biodiversity and ultimately human-wellbeing. In this paper we summarise evidence and envisage what the phenomenon of climate-driven species redistribution means for social-ecological systems in the coming decade. We then consider what steps are within the technical and feasible capability of society to meet this challenge, how to minimise negative outcomes and make the most of opportunities. The focus is mainly on industry (fisheries & tourism), ecosystem function & biodiversity, communities & cultural connections, and governance.
