Metabolic cost of calcification in bivalve larvae under experimental ocean acidification

Published OA 13 December 2016 Abstract: Physiological increases in energy expenditure frequently occur in response to environmental stress. Although energy limitation is often invoked as a basis for decreased calcification under ocean acidification, energy-relevant measurements related to this process are scant. In this study we focus on first-shell (prodissoconch I) formation in
