Bite-size paper: Ocean acidification has diverse effects on zooplankton, damaging coral reefs

Rising CO2 levels cause a significant reduction to demersal zooplankton that live in coral reefs. Joy Smith has just completed her joint PhD at the Universities of Plymouth and Bremen. She has been studying coral reef zooplankton with colleagues in Australia and has shown that rising CO2 levels cause a significant reduction to demersal zooplankton […]
