An overview with discussions on freshwater and marine ecosystems in North America.

This chapter presents an overview (both and current) on climate change and non-infectious and infectious fish disorders. Highlight of this chapter focused on the following: weather and climate change, atmospheric warming and atmospheric carbon dioxide, milankovitch cycles, seasonal changes, temperate climate change, water resources and fisheries, freshwater ecosystems, marine ecosystems, physical limitations for tropical corals, and how they will be affected by the temperate climate, replacement of zooxanthellate corals by azooxanthellate corals in the reef community, mesophotic reefs as potential larval sources for shallow-water reefs, temperate azooxanthellate corals in response to climate change, the effects of increasing seawater temperatures on coral reproduction, the effects of heat stress on zooxanthellar clades in coral, immune responses of coral relative to heat stress, evolution of zooxanthellate versus azooxanthellate corals, and climate change/global warming and the long-term carbon dioxide problem.
