Sub-Lethal Effects of Elevated Concentration of CO 2 on Planktonic Copepods and Sea Urchins

  title={Sub-Lethal Effects of Elevated Concentration of CO 2 on Planktonic Copepods and Sea Urchins},
  author={Haruko Kurihara and Shinji Shimode and Yoshihisa Shirayama},
Data concerning the effects of high CO2 concentrations on marine organisms are essential for both predicting future impacts of the increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration and assessing the effects of deep-sea CO2 sequestration. Here we review our recent studies evaluating the effects of elevated CO2 concentrations in seawater on the mortality and egg production of the marine planktonic copepod, Acartia steueri, and on the fertilization rate and larval morphology of sea urchin embryos… CONTINUE READING
