Sea creature disease trends linked to environmental changes

"The health of Earth’s oceans is rapidly worsening, and newly published Cornell-led research has examined changes in reported diseases across undersea species at a global scale over a 44-year period. The findings, published Oct. 9 in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, show that long-term changes in diseases coincide with recent decades of widespread environmental change. Understanding oceanic trends is important for evaluating today’s threats to marine systems, and disease is an important sentinel of change" - Excerpt from Cornell University
