Effects of CO 2 Enrichment on Marine Phytoplankton

  title={Effects of CO 2 Enrichment on Marine Phytoplankton},
  author={Ulf Riebesell},
Rising atmospheric CO2 and deliberate CO2 sequestration in the ocean change seawater carbonate chemistry in a similar way, lowering seawater pH, carbonate ion concentration and carbonate saturation state and increasing dissolved CO2 concentration. These changes affect marine plankton in various ways. On the organismal level, a moderate increase in CO2 facilitates photosynthetic carbon fixation of some phytoplankton groups. It also enhances the release of dissolved carbohydrates, most notably… CONTINUE READING
