The developmental responses of two closely related species of sand dollars, the tropical Arachnoides placenta, and the temperate, Fellaster zelandiae, to varied seawater temperature and pH

Two of the major climate change factors expected to effect marine life, in the near future are changes in seawater temperature and pH. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, assessment report from 2013 predicts a pH drop between 0.14 and 0.35 pH units from the current average of 8.1 in the next century, which […]
