Life at stable low oxygen levels: adaptations of animals to oceanic oxygen minimum layers.
Zones of minimum oxygen level are found at intermediate depths in most of the world's oceans and, although the oxygen partial pressure in some of these 'oxygen minimum layers' is only a fraction of aExpand

Declining oxygen in the global ocean and coastal waters
Beneath the waves, oxygen disappears As plastic waste pollutes the oceans and fish stocks decline, unseen below the surface another problem grows: deoxygenation. Breitburg et al. review the evidenceExpand

By the end of this century, anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are expected to decrease the surface ocean pH by as much as 0.3 unit. At the same time, the ocean is expected to warm with anExpand

Climate Change and Invasibility of the Antarctic Benthos
Benthic communities living in shallow-shelf habitats in Antarctica (<100-m depth) are archaic in structure and function compared to shallow-water communities elsewhere. Modern predators, includingExpand

Biological impacts of deep-sea carbon dioxide injection inferred from indices of physiological performance
SUMMARY A recent proposal to store anthropogenic carbon dioxide in the deep ocean is assessed here with regard to the impacts on deep-living fauna. The stability of the deep-sea has allowed theExpand

Climate change tightens a metabolic constraint on marine habitats
Double trouble It is well known that climate change will warm ocean waters, but dissolved oxygen levels also decrease as water warms. Deutsch et al. combined data on metabolism, temperature, andExpand

Metabolic physiology of the Humboldt squid, Dosidicus gigas: Implications for vertical migration in a pronounced oxygen minimum zone
Abstract The Humboldt (or jumbo) squid, Dosidicus gigas , is an active predator endemic to the Eastern Pacific that undergoes diel vertical migrations into a pronounced oxygen minimum layer (OML).Expand
