New deal for oceans needed to stop biodiversity loss, says marine biologist March 20,2013   |  Source: ABC

One of the world's leading marine biologists has called for a new deal for oceans so their biodiversity is able to survive what he describes as a perfect storm of threats.

Professor Callum Roberts from Britain's University of York has been in Australia to highlight the value of marine parks and to deliver the Thomas Conservation Oration at the University of Sydney.

His research shows a wave of biodiversity loss is sweeping through marine and coastal ecosystems.

He says overfishing, pollution, rising sea temperatures and ocean acidification are all taking a toll.
