Severe biological effects under present-day estuarine acidification in the seasonally variable Salish Sea

Nina Bednaršeka, Jan A. Newton, Marcus W. Beck, Simone R. Alin, Richard A. Feely, Natasha R.Christman, Terrie Klinger Abstract Estuaries are recognized as one of the habitats most vulnerable to coastal ocean acidification due to seasonal extremes and prolonged duration of acidified conditions. This is combined with co-occurring environmental stressors

Larval development in the Pacific oyster and the impacts of ocean acidification: differential genetic effects in wild and domesticated stocks

The adaptive capacity of marine calcifiers to ocean acidification (OA) is a topic of great interest to evolutionary biologists and ecologists. Previous studies have provided evidence to suggest that larval resilience to high pCO2 seawater for these species is a trait with a genetic basis and variability in natural populations. To date,
