Effects of naturally acidified seawater on seagrass calcareous epibionts.
Surface ocean pH is likely to decrease by up to 0.4 units by 2100 due to the uptake of anthropogenic CO2 from the atmosphere. Short-term experiments have revealed that this degree of seawater acidification can alter ...
Ecological risk assessment of endocrine disruptors.
The European Centre for Ecotoxicology and Toxicology of Chemicals proposes a tiered approach for the ecological risk assessment of endocrine disruptors, integrating exposure and hazard (effects) characterization. Exposure ...
The influence of multiple environmental stressors on the limpet Cellana toreuma during the summer monsoon season in Hong Kong
Although environmental stressors affect natural systems in a multitude of ways, the interactive effect of multiple stressors on ecological assemblages remains largely misunderstudied. On tropical shores which experience ...
