Why is rising temperature a threat to biodiversity?
Our world has several ecosystems which influence each other. Experts declared a negative prognosis for our largest ecosystem - the ocean. They found out that even a rise of the temperature of one to two degrees could lead to some massive catastrophes. One of them: species will arrive at places where they have never been found before due to this development. This will cause a disorder in the natural food chain and lead to a threat to biodiversity.
