Seaweeds are key species of the Baltic Sea benthic ecosystems. They are the substratum of numerous fouling epibionts like bryozoans and tubeworms. Several of these epibionts bear calcified structures and could be impacted by the high pCO2 events of the late summer upwellings in the Baltic nearshores. Those events are expected to increase in strength and duration with global change and ocean acidification. If calcifying epibionts are impacted by transient acidification as driven by upwelling… Expand
Effect of temperature rise and ocean acidification on growth of calcifying tubeworm shells (Spirorbis spirorbis): an in situ benthocosm approach
Abstract. The calcareous tubeworm Spirorbis spirorbis is a widespread serpulid species in the Baltic Sea, where it commonly grows as an epibiont on brown macroalgae (genus Fucus). It lives within aExpand
Altered epiphyte community and sea urchin diet in Posidonia oceanica meadows in the vicinity of volcanic CO2 vents.
TLDR
The OA effects on food items (seagrass, epiphytes, and algae) indirectly propagated into food provision to the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus, as reflected by a reduced P. oceanica exploitation in favour of non-calcareous green algae in both vent sites. Expand
Ocean acidification affects calcareous tube growth in adults and reared offspring of serpulid polychaetes
TLDR
Investigation of calcified tube growth of Serpulidae under low-pH conditions indicates that ocean acidification will negatively affect the initiation and persistence of both biofouling and epiphytic polychaete tube worms. Expand
Abiotic and biotic interactions in the diffusive boundary layer of kelp blades create a potential refuge from ocean acidification
TLDR
Overall, this study shows that, in slow flow, DBL microenvironments at the surface of the kelps may constitute a refuge from OA with pH values higher than those of the mainstream seawater. Expand
Macroalgae may mitigate ocean acidification effects on mussel calcification by increasing pH and its fluctuations
TLDR
Investigation of interactions between OA, brown alga Fucus vesiculosus, the sea grass Zostera marina and the blue mussel Mytilus edulis in the western Baltic found macrophytes may mitigate OA impact on mussel calcification by raising mean pH and providing temporal refuge from acidification stress. Expand
An in situ assessment of local adaptation in a calcifying polychaete from a shallow CO 2 vent system
TLDR
The data suggest that, for Simplaria and possibly other calcifiers, neither local adaptations nor sufficient phenotypic plasticity levels appear to suffice in order to compensate for the negative impacts of OA on long‐term survival. Expand
A comparison of life-history traits in calcifying Spirorbinae polychaetes living along natural pH gradients
TLDR
The results suggest that tolerance to low pH may result, in part, from traits associated with successful reproduction and rapid settlement under low-pH conditions, and implies that other species with similar life-history traits may respond similarly, and should be targeted for future OA tolerance research. Expand
Effects of in situ CO2 enrichment on Posidonia oceanica epiphytic community composition and mineralogy
TLDR
The more positive outcome than expected suggests that calcareous members of epiphytic communities may find refuge in some conditions and be resilient to environmentally relevant changes in carbonate chemistry. Expand
Growth and Calcification of Marine Bryozoans in a Changing Ocean
TLDR
This review of bryozoan growth and calcification allows a general perspective, but also reveals gaps in knowledge which need to be addressed. Expand
Long-term fluctuations in epibiotic bryozoan and hydroid abundances in an Irish sea lough
TLDR
Monitoring for more than two decades at 10 rocky shore sites within Lough Hyne Marine Reserve, SW Ireland revealed a significant reduction in abundance of the ctenostome bryozoan, Flustrellidra hispida, through time, coincident with the development of daily, extreme, shallow water oxygen fluctuations (hyperoxia and hypoxia) due to eutrophication.

A possible benefit of the presence of the epiphytic bryozoan Electra pilosa (L.) for the red macroalga Gelidium sesquipedale (Clem.) Thuret et Bornet is described. Absorption spectra andExpand
Crusts of the alien bryozoan Membranipora membranacea can negatively impact spore output from native kelps (Laminaria longicruris)
TLDR
In years when Membranipora encrustation impact is high and coincides with invasion by other nonnative species and/or elevated levels of sea urchin grazing, there is the potential for conversion of the rocky subtidal benthos to a new, possibly stable community state. Expand

TLDR
Five species of Spirorbis co-occur amongst the macro-algae and rocks of a semi-tidal basin behind a marine waterfall in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland, where certain combinations of variables proved significant niche dimensions in the competitive organization of the community. Expand
Effect of bryozoan colonization on inorganic nitrogen acquisition by the kelps Agarum fimbriatum and Macrocystis integrifolia
TLDR
Results are consistent with the hypothesis that ammonium excreted by bryozoans was an important source of inorganic nitrogen to M. integrifolia, but not to A. fimbriatum, at the time of the study. Expand

TLDR
The results demonstrate the high variability of the carbonate system in nearshore macrophyte meadows depending on meteorology and biological activities and highlight the need to incorporate these variations in future pCO2 scenarios and experimental designs for nearshore habitats. Expand
