Impact of Climate Change on the Marine Flora



Although marine flora is vital to other living organisms, climate changes affect them negatively, leading to reduction or complete termination of the many importance they provide to other organisms. Climate changes can affect marine flora directly or indirectly, and the same applies to the other organisms based on the benefits they receive from the marine flora.
Climate changes such as increased water temperatures cascade effects on these marine floras. For example, hot water leads to the bleaching of corals. This leads to the destruction of coral reefs, which usually serve as a habitat to many marine ecosystem organisms and food sources to marine organisms and even people. Algae tend to create a symbiotic relationship with the corals whereby they can attain maximum light for photosynthesis; thus, bleaching of coral leads to less biodiversity of the algae, which are the source of food in the marine ecosystem.
The growth of several marine floras tends to undergo retardation in the presence of extremely high temperatures. Some may undergo extinction; thus, other organisms’ benefits go missing.
