The effect of CO2 and temperature change on phytoplankton and benthic algae - a mesocosm study

By the end of this century, the expected atmospheric CO2 concentration will reach 800~1000 ppm. Phytoplankton and benthic algae are the primary production in the ocean, but the effects of CO2 and temperature on the algae is inconclusive. 159 more words


Metagenomics reveals planktonic bacterial community shifts across a natural CO2 gradient in the Mediterranean Sea

Bacterial communities at a CO2 vent (pH 6.7) were compared with those at control (pH 8.0) and transition sites (pH 7.6) using 16S rRNA metagenomics. … 68 more words
