Impacts of ocean acidification on marine shelled molluscs
While fertilization may remain unaffected by elevated pCO2, embryonic and larval development will be highly sensitive with important reductions in size and decreased survival of larvae, increases in the number of abnormal larvae and an increase in the developmental time. Expand
Adult exposure influences offspring response to ocean acidification in oysters
It is suggested that sensitive marine organisms may have the capacity to acclimate or adapt to elevated Pco2 over the next century and a change in energy turnover indicated by SMR may be a key process involved. Expand
The effect of ocean acidification and temperature on the fertilization and embryonic development of the Sydney rock oyster Saccostrea glomerata (Gould 1850)
The results of this study suggest that predicted changes in ocean acidification and temperature over the next century may have severe implications for the distribution and abundance of S. glomerata as well as possible consequences for the reproduction and development of other marine invertebrates. Expand
Predicting the Response of Molluscs to the Impact of Ocean Acidification
Even sub lethal impacts on molluscs due to climate changed oceans will have serious consequences for global protein sources and marine ecosystems. Expand
Comparing the effect of elevated pCO2 and temperature on the fertilization and early development of two species of oysters
In the absence of adaptation, C. gigas may become the more dominant species along the south-eastern coast of Australia, recruiting into estuaries currently dominated by the native S. glomerata. Expand
The Impact of Ocean Acidification on Reproduction, Early Development and Settlement of Marine Organisms
The need for studies to investigate the total effects of climate change including the synergistic impact of temperature, and the need for long-term multigenerational experiments to determine whether vulnerable invertebrates have the capacity to adapt to elevations in atmospheric CO2 over the next century are highlighted. Expand
Populations of the Sydney rock oyster, Saccostrea glomerata, vary in response to ocean acidification
It is shown that selectively bred lines of the ecologically and economically important estuarine mollusc, the Sydney rock oyster Saccostrea glomerata, are more resilient to ocean acidification than the wild populations. Expand
Persistence of Positive Carryover Effects in the Oyster, Saccostrea glomerata, following Transgenerational Exposure to Ocean Acidification
It was found that the capacity of adults to regulate extracellular pH at elevatedCO2 was improved if they had a prior history of transgenerational exposure to elevated CO2, and subsequent transgenerations led to an increase in the resilience of their larval and juvenile offspring. Expand
Effects of multiple climate change stressors: ocean acidification interacts with warming, hyposalinity, and low food supply on the larvae of the brooding flat oyster Ostrea angasi
The pH of the fluid surrounding the gills of adult oysters where larvae are brooded and the interactive effects of the multiple climate-related stressors, including ocean acidification, warming, hyposalinity, and reduced food availability, on development of O. angasi larvae were determined to be relatively resilient to elevated pCO2.
