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 ...
Systems biology meets stress ecology: linking molecular and organismal stress responses in Daphnia magna.
BACKGROUND: Ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have been designed to interrupt eicosanoid metabolism in mammals, but little is known of how they affect nontarget organisms. Here we report a systems ...
Spore release by the green alga Ulva: a quantitative assay to evaluate aquatic toxicants.
A toxicity test using spore release of the aquatic green alga, Ulva, was developed and evaluated by assessing the toxicity of different organic and inorganic chemicals and elutriates of sewage or waste sludge. The toxic ...
