This study is the first to drill down into the relationship between oxygen, temperature and the metabolic requirements of vertical migrators, which include krill to the jumbo squid (shown here). The metabolic requirements of vertical migrators suggest they may experience an expansion of their native habitat in response to changing ocean conditions. Credit: Stephani Gordon, Open Boat Films

Warming oceans likely to shrink the viable habitat of many marine animals – but not all

As the oceans warm squid and other vertical migrators living in tropical zones are likely to expand their habitat northward – but not necessarily leave their native tropical zones.
