Impact of CO2-acidified seawater on the extracellular acid–base balance of the northern sea urchin Strongylocentrotus dröebachiensis

Posted on EPOCA: 08 Aug 2011 — Highlights ► Hypercapnia exposed sea urchins did not compensate for an internal acidification. ► This internal acidosis increased in intensity with decreasing environmental pH. ► This was similar to P. miliaris despite marked differences in seawater carbonate. This study highlights the need for
