Ocean algae can evolve fast to tackle climate change - study

OSLO (Reuters) - Tiny marine algae can evolve fast enough to cope with climate change in a sign that some ocean life may be more resilient than thought to rising temperatures and acidification, a study showed. Evolution is usually omitted in scientific projections of how global warming will affect the planet in coming decades because genetic changes happen too slowly to help larger creatures such as cod, tuna or whales. Sunday's study found that a type of microscopic algae that can produce 500 generations a year - or more than one a day - can still thrive when exposed to warmer temperatures and levels of ocean acidification predicted for the mid-2100s. #facebook #China #Japan #Technology #France #Arabic #Middle East #markets #North Korea #Argentina #Latin America #opinion
