Reduced calcification of marine plankton in response to increased atmospheric CO2
The formation of calcareous skeletons by marine planktonic organisms and their subsequent sinking to depth generates a continuous rain of calcium carbonate to the deep ocean and underlying sediments.Expand

Guide to best practices for ocean acidification research and data reporting
Ocean acidification is an undisputed fact. The ocean presently takes up one-fourth of the carbon CO2 emitted to the atmosphere from human activities. As this CO2 dissolves in the surface ocean, itExpand

Ocean acidification due to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide
The oceans cover over two-thirds of the Earth’s surface. They play a vital role in global biogeochemical cycles, contribute enormously to the planet’s biodiversity and provide a livelihood forExpand

CO2 and HCO3 ߚ uptake in marine diatoms acclimated to different CO2 concentrations
Rates of cellular uptake of CO2 and HCO3 2 during steady-state photosynthesis were measured in the marine diatoms Thalassiosira weissflogii and Phaeodactylum tricornutum,acclimated to CO2 partialExpand

Enhanced biological carbon consumption in a high CO2 ocean
The oceans have absorbed nearly half of the fossil-fuel carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted into the atmosphere since pre-industrial times, causing a measurable reduction in seawater pH and carbonateExpand

Carbon acquisition of bloom-forming marine phytoplankton
Carbon acquisition in relation to CO2 supply was investigated in three marine bloom-forming microalgae, the diatom Skeletonema costatum, the flagellate Phaeocystis globosa, and the coccolithophoridExpand

A communal catalogue reveals Earth’s multiscale microbial diversity
Our growing awareness of the microbial world’s importance and diversity contrasts starkly with our limited understanding of its fundamental structure. Despite recent advances in DNA sequencing, aExpand

Carbon dioxide limitation of marine phytoplankton growth rates
THE supply of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) is not considered to limit oceanic primary productivity1, as its concentration in sea water exceeds that of other plant macronutrients such as nitrateExpand
