    This paper, "Climate change and marine plankton", reviews the importance of marine plankton; how we capture and record their distribution and abundance; and how sensitive they can be as indicators of environmental change.

    "Impacts of Climate Change on Marine Organisms and Ecosystems" is a good resource to understand the natural cycles of climate (that is, those cycles not influenced by human activity) as well as the trajectory we are on. Discusses potential impacts on everything from plankton to whales.
