Study: Global warming can destroy almost the entire ecosystem of the Mediterranean Sea

Biologists studied the connections between flowering plants and insect pollinators in seven regions of Europe. By

According to the study's lead author, Jordi Basconta, the scientists initially took the rock rose, which grows in southern Spain, as an example.

Experts believe that by 2080 it will disappear from52% probability. In the event that this happens, one of its pollinators, a carpenter bee, will also be threatened with extinction, since one of its main sources of nutrition will disappear. In this case, the carpenter bee pollinates and the myrtle plant, which, in the event of the death of this insect, will also be on the verge of destruction.

To predict the fate of species, environmentalistsClimate models are usually used, considering individual species in isolation. This overlooks the fact that the species are part of a gigantic network of mutual dependence.

At the same time, the prospect of destroying myrtle by 2080 in isolation from all plants is only 38%, and if you take into account the influence of one species on another, the danger increases to 62%.

In a recently published study by the InstituteGoddard Space Research (GISS) at NASA and Columbia University scientists concluded that the impact of human activity on global warming can be traced back to the beginning of the 20th century.

Earlier, scientists from the Technical University of Munich concluded that global warming will make trees around the world more, but their wood will not be as strong as it is now.
