Interactions of diet quality and pH in growth and mortality in the marine gastropod Crepidula fornicata
Ocean acidification metabolically stresses marine organisms, especially those that must expend energy to deposit calcium carbonate shells and skeletons. Nutrition may interact with pH to exacerbate or counterbalance acidification effects in early developmental stages. Previous work had indicated that growth of larvae and ...
Effects of Temperature and pH on Larval and Juvenile Development in the Marine Gastropod, Crepidula fornicata
Rising atmospheric CO2 levels are associated with warming and acidification in coastal marine ecosystems, with impacts that are especially acute for marine calcifiers. We have investigated the interactive effects of pH and temperature on larval growth, time to metamorphic competence, and juvenile growth in the marine ...
