Energy homeostasis as an integrative tool for assessing limits of environmental stress tolerance in aquatic invertebrates.
Energy balance is a fundamental requirement of stress adaptation and tolerance. We explore the links between metabolism, energy balance and stress tolerance using aquatic invertebrates as an exampleExpand

Elevated level of carbon dioxide affects metabolism and shell formation in oysters Crassostrea virginica
Estuarine organisms are exposed to periodic strong fluctuations in seawater pH driven by biological carbon dioxide (CO2) production, which may in the future be further exacerbated by the oceanExpand

Proteomic response to elevated PCO2 level in eastern oysters, Crassostrea virginica: evidence for oxidative stress
SUMMARY Estuaries are characterized by extreme fluctuations in CO2 levels due to bouts of CO2 production by the resident biota that exceed its capacity of CO2 consumption and/or the rates of gasExpand

Interactive effects of salinity and elevated CO2 levels on juvenile eastern oysters, Crassostrea virginica
SUMMARY Rising levels of atmospheric CO2 lead to acidification of the ocean and alter seawater carbonate chemistry, which can negatively impact calcifying organisms, including mollusks. In estuaries,Expand

Interactive effects of elevated temperature and CO2 levels on energy metabolism and biomineralization of marine bivalves Crassostrea virginica and Mercenaria mercenaria.
The continuing increase of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere leads to increases in global temperatures and partial pressure of CO2 (PCO2) in surface waters, causing ocean acidification.Expand

Effects of cadmium on cellular protein and glutathione synthesis and expression of stress proteins in eastern oysters, Crassostrea virginica Gmelin
SUMMARY Cadmium (Cd) is an important toxicant in estuarine and coastal environments that can strongly affect energy balance of aquatic organisms by increasing the organism's basal energy demand andExpand
