Dr. Kenneth De Baets and Paulina Nätscher, both from Chair of Palaeobiology, together with scientists from France, Berlin and Portugal, have succeeded in providing a robust basis for the determination of growth changes due to climate change, where the Belemnites – different species of cephalopods related to today’s cuttlefish – play a special role: “Changes in growth patterns due to climate change”. They found that one of the most common responses of changeable marine organisms to rapid warming is a decrease in body height. The results have now been published in the journal Scientific Reports – Nature.
