A new study suggests that the chinese are living the life of dinosaurs.
The research, published in the journal Nature Communications, also shows that Chilean marine ecosystems are resilient to climate change, suggesting that they may not be as vulnerable to future disasters.
The new study was carried out by researchers at the National Research Institute for Sea Sciences (INSS), the Chilean Academy of Sciences (CAS), and the Universidad de Chile.
Professor José Luis Azevedo, one of the study’s authors, said:”We found that marine ecosystems across Chile were thriving even before climate change hit.”
The study, which involved over 400 people, found that the fish species in the Andes of Chile are growing more rapidly and more efficiently than the populations elsewhere in the world.
The study also found that while many of the fish that lived on land were still around 10,000 years ago, many of them had already gone extinct in the past 15,000 to 20,000.
Professor Azeveldo said: “We’re living in a world of changing conditions and climate change is a huge problem.”
He said that many marine species could be found in areas with little to no human activity.

A study published last year found that Chile was one of only five countries in the Americas to have an ocean protected marine ecosystem.
It’s a policy that has been criticised by the Australian government and scientists, with the US Department of Agriculture and the US Marine Fisheries Service arguing that it would cost the country $8.5 billion (£5.3 billion) to protect all of its fish stocks.
Professor Alan MacKenzie, from the University of New South Wales, said that it was an issue that needed to be addressed in Australia.
He said: “”We’re not going to see the species we’re looking for, we’re not even going to get to where we want to go.
“Professor MacKenny said the US had the largest marine biodiversity reserves on Earth, and that Australia’s was smaller.
He added: “They have to do something.
If they don’t, it’s not going get better.
They’re just going to lose out.
