Marine ecosystems are changing and the services they provide are threatened by global environmental changes. Environmental changes can provoke evolution of species, affecting both the realized and fundamental niches of species. Environmental change can drive evolution, but evolution can also affect environmental conditions. There is a need for a unifying framework that combines studies of evolution, metabolism, and climate change. That framework should be based on ecological theory, on the study of the realized and fundamental niche dynamics, their spatial and temporal dynamics, and their potential response to environmental changes.
