Food supply and seawater pCO2 impact calcification and internal shell dissolution in the blue mussel Mytilus edulis

Posted on EPOCA: 20 Sep 2011  Progressive ocean acidification due to anthropogenic CO2 emissions will alter marine ecosytem processes. Calcifying organisms might be particularly vulnerable to these alterations in the speciation of the marine carbonate system. While previous research efforts have mainly focused on external dissolution of shells in seawater under
