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.

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
Fish assemblages in seagrass beds are influenced by the proximity of mangrove forests
Fish that utilise mangrove forests at high tide were found in greater species densities and species richness in seagrass nearer to mangroves, and a negative relationship was found between the density ofMangrove-utilising fish species and the distance of the bed fromMangroves. Expand
‘Tough love and tears’: learning doctoral writing in the sciences
Contemporary changes to the doctorate mean student researchers are likely to be expected to write differently, write more and more often, and yet, despite a growing interest in doctoral education, weExpand

Trampling paths are a feature of estuarine habitats in southeastern Australia. An experimental investigation quantified the impact of trampling over a 3 year period on the microhabitat features andExpand
