CO2 induced seawater acidification impacts sea urchin larval development I: elevated metabolic rates decrease scope for growth and induce developmental delay

Posted on EPOCA: 01 Jul 2011   Anthropogenic CO2 emissions are acidifying the world’s oceans. A growing body of evidence is showing that ocean acidification impacts growth and developmental rates of marine invertebrates. Here we test the impact of elevated seawater pCO2 (129 Pa, 1271 μatm) on early development, larval
