Changes in environmental conditions can act as stressors, with potential consequences for the health and fitness of organisms. Rising levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) is one potential environmental stressor that is occurring more frequently in the environment and can be a stressor for aquatic organisms. In this study, the physiological responses of two species of unionid mussel, Lampsilis siliquoidea and Amblema plicata, were assessed in response to exposure to two levels of elevated partial… CONTINUE READING
