Abstract

Ian Bouyoucos investigated mechanisms of vulnerability to climate change in newborn reef shark populations. He found that blacktip reef sharks (Carcharhinus melanopterus) and sicklefin lemon sharks (Negaprion acutidens) exhibit unique physiological and behavioural responses to climate change conditions. Tropical shark populations could become adversely affected by ocean warming and acidification.
