We report here the data set entitled “Impacts of climate change on organisms in the Mediterranean Sea,” which is the basis for the analysis of impacts of climate change on marine organisms presented by Marbà et al. (2015a). The data is deposited at Digital CSIC, the institutional repository of the Spanish National Research Council, and can be accessed at http://hdl.handle.net/10261/116098 (Marbà et al., 2015b).

In this data set we compiled evidence of warming on Mediterranean Sea biota derived from published reports. These were derived from a broad literature search conducted through the ISI Web of Knowledge, completed in December 2014. Hence, the data set contains information published until year 2014. The search was conducted using the keywords “(Mediterranean) AND ((Bio* OR Eco*)) AND ((warming OR temperature)) AND ((Marine OR Ocean*)) NOT ((paleo*)).”
