The anthropogenic release of carbon dioxide (CO(2)) into the atmosphere leads to an increase in the CO(2) partial pressure (pCO(2)) in the ocean, which may reach 950 μatm by the end of the 21st century. The resulting hypercapnia (high pCO(2)) and decreasing pH ("ocean acidification") are expected to have appreciable effects on water-breathing organisms, especially on their early-life stages. For organisms like squid that lay their eggs in coastal areas where the embryo and then paralarva are… CONTINUE READING
