Increased ultraviolet radiation has caused a sharp rise in the deaths of marine species, scientists have found.

An international team gathered information from previous studies looking at the effects of ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation on marine life.

Their work shows a close link between UVB levels and death rate, particularly in algae, corals and crustaceans.

The team believe this is the first time the effect of UVB on the health of marine ecosystems has been calculated.
