Key to adaptation limits of ocean dwellers: Simpler organisms better suited for climate change - ScienceDaily
The simpler a marine organism is structured, the better it is suited for survival during climate change. … For the first time biologists studied the relationship between the complexity of life forms and the ultimate limits of their adaptation to a warmer climate. While unicellular bacteria and archaea are able to live even in hot, oxygen-deficient water, marine creatures with a more complex structure, such as animals and plants, reach their growth limits at a water temperature of 41 degrees Celsius. This temperature threshold seems to be insurmountable for their highly developed metabolic systems.
