But that doesn't mean deep-sea communities are in the clear. From the Guardian:
"Creatures which live deep beneath the ocean surface are likely to be badly hit by climate change over the next century, a new study says.
The study, by an international research team from the UK, Canada, Australia and France, is the first to quantify future losses in deep-sea marine life, using advanced climate models.
The researchers say their results show that even the most remote deep-sea ecosystems are not safe from the impacts of a warming world. They say the weight of the marine creatures that will be lost is greater than the combined weight of every person on Earth."
But let's take a break from such weighty conservation issues for a moment and watch an owlfish (Pseudobathylagus milleri) duke it out with a clawed armhook squid (Gonatus onyx), courtesy of the fantastic Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute:
