The combined effects of ocean warming and acidification on shallow-water meiofaunal assemblages

Highlights Higher seawater temperature did not effect meiofaunal abundance. Lower seawater pH did reduce meiofaunal abundance and species richness. Nematode assemblages showed increased dominance under a future OW/OA scenario. Abstract Climate change due to increased anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere is causing an increase in seawater temperatures referred to as ocean warming and a decre
