Effects of light, temperature, and ocean acidification on the physiology and ecology of tropical crustose coralline algae

In the oceans, changes in seawater carbonate chemistry associated with increasing atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (a process referred to as ocean acidification, or OA) is predicted to have significant effects on many marine species, particularly ones that calcify and/or photosynthesize. The effects of OA on these groups likely will be modulated by other environmental […]
