The effects of elevated partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2) and temperature on the cocco lithophore Syracosphaera pulchra were investigated in isolation and in combination. Both the diploid and the haploid life stages were studied. Batch cultures were grown under 4 conditions: 400 μatm and 19°C; 400 μatm and 22°C; 740 μatm and 19°C; and 740 μatm and 22°C. The growth rate (μ) significantly increased under elevated pCO2 only in the haploid stage and showed a different pattern with respect to… CONTINUE READING
