Community-level response of coastal microbial biofilms to ocean acidification in a natural carbon dioxide vent ecosystem.
The impacts of ocean acidification on coastal biofilms are poorly understood. Carbon dioxide vent areas provide an opportunity to make predictions about the impacts of ocean acidification. We compared biofilms that colonised ...
The ecology of seamounts: structure, function, and human impacts.
In this review of seamount ecology, we address a number of key scientific issues concerning the structure and function of benthic communities, human impacts, and seamount management and conservation. We consider whether ...
Predicting ecosystem shifts requires new approaches that integrate the effects of climate change across entire systems.
Most studies that forecast the ecological consequences of climate change target a single species and a single life stage. Depending on climatic impacts on other life stages and on interacting species, however, the results ...
Seasonality affects macroalgal community response to increases in pCO2.
Ocean acidification is expected to alter marine systems, but there is uncertainty about its effects due to the logistical difficulties of testing its large-scale and long-term effects. Responses of biological communities ...
Volcanic carbon dioxide vents show ecosystem effects of ocean acidification
(Nature Research, 2008-07-03)
The atmospheric partial pressure of carbon dioxide (p(CO(2))) will almost certainly be double that of pre-industrial levels by 2100 and will be considerably higher than at any time during the past few million years. The ...
