A marine regime shift year-by-year

In the central Baltic Sea (North Europe), a regime shift associated with food-web reorganization and redirection of energy flow pathways took place in the 1980s.

The results describe detailed changes in ecosystem resilience and food web structure. – Tomczak et al. 2013
