More than 30 scientists from around the world have released their latest research on the worlds that are likely to harbour life.
What we’re learning from the latest ocean research The ocean is changing and changing fast.
The current era of the deep sea is ending and we’re in the midst of a sea age.
The oceans are undergoing a period of rapid warming and the seas are getting more acidic.
The world’s oceans are warming up as well.
Some of the worlds most dangerous species have evolved, including jellyfish and sea turtles.
Some marine life are in decline and some of them are thriving, with some species becoming critically endangered.
The study, published in the journal Science, shows that some of the world’s most vulnerable worlds are also the most likely places to host species that have evolved and are adapting to changing environments.
The researchers have analysed data from a variety of sources and analysed the worlds biggest oceans, looking at both species richness and species diversity.
Their analysis shows that a wide range of ocean worlds will be likely to have some life, with a variety on the rise.
It is the most comprehensive ocean study to date, encompassing the oceans of every country in the world.
Key findings from the researchThe ocean is undergoing a shift, as the oceans heat up and acidify, changing the species on the move and the world as a whole.
Many of the most dangerous life on the planet are evolving and adapting to changeThe study shows that the oceans are experiencing a period in which they are undergoing rapid warming, which is contributing to changes in the planet’s ecosystems and the biodiversity on them.
The research also suggests that certain ocean worlds could be the most threatened, as there are areas of the ocean where species are disappearing or being pushed back into the oceans.
But the study also suggests there is hope, pointing out that many species that are thriving are being protected.
Scientists say the oceans will be warming faster than they’ve ever been, and the oceans could be even more acidic than the atmosphere, meaning that some areas will be more acidic in future.
The ocean has never warmed so fast, so the researchers say the impact of climate change is likely to be much greater.
They say that some oceans could become hotspots of marine life.
“It’s going to be a world that’s much more dangerous in the future, because the oceans might become more acidic, they might get more hostile, they could be more dangerous,” Dr Tom Scholz, a senior scientist at the Carnegie Institution, said.
Dr Scholza said there were some things that were quite clear in the data.
For example, the study shows a lot of the seas we know as oceans are actually quite different from one another, and some parts of the oceans can be extremely different from each other, he said.
“And some parts have some amazing biodiversity.”
But the reality is, in terms of the biodiversity, we’re seeing a lot more species that we know are very different from the biodiversity that’s found in the ocean, and that’s really good news for the world.
“A lot of biodiversity is coming from a single placeDr Scholtz said that it’s a mistake to think that the ocean is a one-dimensional thing.”
The oceans that we see in the sea, the ocean that we’re swimming in, the oceans that are moving around the sea and the ocean at the bottom, they are all quite different,” he said, “and the fact that we think that there’s one single ocean is really really wrong.
“He said that in fact the ocean was constantly changing and evolving.
The team say the ocean has been warming faster over the last 100 million years than at any other time in the last 200 million years, which suggests that it has some influence on species living in it.
It also suggests a link between changing ocean chemistry and changes in biodiversity.
The results from the study could help to inform conservation efforts around the globe, with conservationists keen to protect the biodiversity and life on each world, Dr Scholtza said.
