A team of Australian scientists has an answer: miniature ecosystems designed to simulate the effect of climate change. The experiments are already revealing dangers that would have been missed had researchers tried to study individual species in isolation. "If you just take one fish and put it in a tank and see how it responds to temperature, you can imagine that's a huge simplification of reality," said Ivan Nagelkerken, an ecologist at the University of Adelaide who is leading the research effort. Testing the effects Yet studying an entire ecosystem in nature, made up of thousands of species, has its own drawbacks.
