Acidified seawater impacts sea urchin larvae pH regulatory systems relevant for calcification

Posted on EPOCA: 23 Oct 2012  Calcifying echinoid larvae respond to changes in seawater carbonate chemistry with reduced growth and developmental delay. To date, no information exists on how ocean acidification acts on pH homeostasis in echinoderm larvae. Understanding acid–base regulatory capacities is important because intracellular formation and maintenance of
