Stressors in the Marine Environment: Physiological and ecological responses; societal implications

Martin Solan and Nia Whiteley


Anthropogenic changes to the marine environment are causing some considerable concern and yet there is very little information on the overall effects of either single or multiple human influences on species, populations, or, indeed, communities. The indication is that anthropogenic stressors have significantly altered the composition and diversity of marine communities at almost every trophic level, which can have profound effects on surviving species and ecosystems, especially when major processes are supported by a limited number of species. Studies investigating the effects of multiple stre ... More

Keywords: anthropogenic, multiple stressors, physiological responses, ecological responses, community, marine environment, society
