Dissolution: The achilles' heel of the triton shell in an acidifying ocean
(Frontiers Media, 2018-10-12)
© 2018 Harvey, Agostini, Wada, Inaba and Hall-Spencer. Ocean acidification is expected to negatively impact many calcifying marine organisms by impairing their ability to build their protective shells and skeletons, and ...
Rising levels of temperature and CO2 antagonistically affect phytoplankton primary productivity in the South China Sea.
Coastal and offshore waters in the South China Sea are warming and becoming acidified due to rising atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), yet the combined effects of these two stressors are poorly known. Here, we ...
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 ...
