Abstract: As per the Essential Climate Variables (ESV) ofWorld Meterological Organisation (WMO),the physical, chemical and biologicalvariables critically contribute to the earth’s climate. Among them, thevariables such as temperature and pH in the marine environment may affectseriously and in turn it has an impact onthe biota, especially in the intertidal environment, where it has brunt force.According to United Nations FrameworkConvention on Climate Change (UNFCCC),the datasets should provide the empirical evidence needed to predict the climate change and evoluate the mitigation and adaptation measures. Under this context,a review was carried out to know what extent marine scientists understand this factor and what level the biodiversity wasevoluated and its impact was analysed in this article. Based on the existingliterature review, it was understood that only a few groups that also only few species from these groups were studied inthis aspect. The remaining groups and theirspecies and their basic trophic were notevolved in this aspect. So, the marinescientific community, environmentalist andpolicy makers should take stock on thisaspect and give thrust on this study.
