ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF VOLCANIC CO2 VENTS
Marine bivalve shell geochemistry and ultrastructure from modern low pH environments: Environmental effect versus experimental bias
Bivalve shells can provide excellent archives of past environmental change but have not been used to interpret ocean acidification events. We investigated carbon, oxygen and trace element records from different shell layers ...
Effects of ocean acidification on Mediterranean coastal habitats
(Nova Science Publishers, Inc. New York, 2012-01-01)
Calcification is not the Achilles' heel of cold-water corals in an acidifying ocean.
Ocean acidification is thought to be a major threat to coral reefs: laboratory evidence and CO2 seep research has shown adverse effects on many coral species, although a few are resilient. There are concerns that cold-water ...
Ocean acidification impairs vermetid reef recruitment.
Vermetids form reefs in sub-tropical and warm-temperate waters that protect coasts from erosion, regulate sediment transport and accumulation, serve as carbon sinks and provide habitat for other species. The gastropods ...
Physiological advantages of dwarfing in surviving extinctions in high-CO2 oceans
Excessive CO2 in the present-day ocean–atmosphere system is causing ocean acidification, and is likely to cause a severe biodiversity decline in the future1, mirroring eff ects in many past mass extinctions2–4. Fossil ...
