Human-dominated marine ecosystems are experiencing accelerating loss of populations and species, with largely unknown consequences.

Overall, rates of resource collapse increased and recovery potential, stability, and water quality decreased exponentially with declining diversity. Restoration of biodiversity, in contrast, increased productivity fourfold and decreased variability by 21%, on average.
