Shell condition and survival of Puget Sound pteropods are impaired by ocean acidification conditions

We tested whether the thecosome pteropod Limacina helicina from Puget Sound, an urbanized estuary in the northwest continental US, experiences shell dissolution and altered mortality rates when exposed to the high CO2, low aragonite saturation state (Ωa) conditions that occur in Puget Sound and the northeast Pacific Ocean. 239 more words

Zooplankton

Zooplankton /ˌzoʊ.əˈplŋktən/ are heterotrophic (sometimes detritivorous) plankton. Plankton are organisms drifting in oceans, seas, and bodies of fresh water. The word “zooplankton” is derived from the Greek zoon (ζῴον), meaning “animal”, and planktos (πλαγκτός), meaning “wanderer” or “drifter”.[1] Individual zooplankton are usually microscopic, but some (such as jellyfish) are larger and visible with the naked eye.

Coping with climate change? Copepods experience drastic variations in their physicochemical environment on a diurnal basis

Migratory zooplankton, such as copepods experience widely varying conditions in their physicochemical environment on a diurnal basis. The amplitude of the fluctuations may affect the copepods’ ability to respond to climate change. 174 more words
