Effects of different pCO2 concentrations on marine bacterial community structure, Eastern Harbor, Alexandria, Egypt

The direct effect of an elevated CO2 concentration range (280, 385, 550, 750 and 1050 μatm) on the marine bacterial counts and dominancy of species were examined. 259 more words


Late winter under ice pelagic microbial communities in the high Arctic Ocean and the impact of short-term exposure to elevated CO2 levels

Polar Oceans are natural CO2 sinks because of the enhanced solubility of CO2 in cold water. The Arctic Ocean is at additional risk of accelerated ocean acidification (OA) because of freshwater inputs from sea ice and rivers, which influence the carbonate system. 242 more words



Today it is widely known that one of the smallest and most abundant living organisms on earth go by the name, “prokaryotes.” These microorganisms have been the center of much scientific investigation. 1,165 more words


Millennial-scale ocean acidification and late Quaternary decline of cryptic bacterial crusts in tropical reefs

Ocean acidification by atmospheric carbon dioxide has increased almost continuously since the last glacial maximum (LGM), 21 000 years ago. It is expected to impair tropical reef development, but effects on reefs at the present day and in the recent past have proved difficult to evaluate. 212 more words
