Relative roles of endolithic algae and carbonate chemistry variability in the skeletal dissolution of crustose coralline algae (update)

Posted on OA: 2 Sep 2014 The susceptibility of crustose coralline algae (CCA) skeletons to dissolution is predicted to increase as oceans warm and acidify. Skeletal dissolution is caused by bioerosion from endolithic microorganisms and by chemical processes associated with undersaturation of carbonate minerals in seawater. Yet, the relative contribution
