There has been much discussion, especially recently, about the impacts of climate change. One interesting area is the ecology of human disease. In a world where oceans are warming at alarming rates, the relationship between oceans and human health has become an important area of research. Diseases that affect the health of our seafood supply by harming harvested species indirectly threaten us, but marine diseases directly affect human health as well. Increasing occurrences of harmful algal blooms and increased transmission potential of cholera are two examples. In a recent work by Baker-Austin and colleagues, the emerging risk of bacterial pathogens of the genus Vibrio is presented relevant to the increase in sea surface temperatures......
