Impact of CO2 leakage from sub-seabed carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) reservoirs on benthic virus–prokaryote interactions and functions

Atmospheric CO2 emissions are a global concern due to their predicted impact on biodiversity, ecosystems functioning, and human life. Among the proposed mitigation strategies, CO2 capture and storage, primarily the injection of CO2 into marine deep geological formations has been suggested as a technically practical option for reducing emissions. 233 more words


Survival and expression of DNA repair genes in marine bacteria Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes NP103 and P. aeruginosa N6P6 in response to environmental stressors

A comparative response of marine bacteria Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes NP103 and P. aeruginosa N6P6 under pH stress and UV radiation (UVR) revealed that both their survival pattern and repair mechanism are species specific. 208 more words


Honeymoon in the rectum of the ocean

The world is weird. Check it:

Deep-sea prokaryotes feed each other electrons like the couple at the table over there bothering everyone else with their sappy rom-com lovey-dovey bullshit.  273 more words

Bacterial abundance, processes and diversity responses to acidification at a coastal CO2 vent

Shallow CO2 vents are used as natural laboratories to study biological responses to ocean acidification, and so it is important to determine whether pH is the primary driver of bacterial processes and community composition, or whether other variables associated with vent water have a significant influence. 193 more words

Irreversibly increased nitrogen fixation in Trichodesmium experimentally adapted to elevated carbon dioxide

Nitrogen fixation rates of the globally distributed, biogeochemically important marine cyanobacterium Trichodesmium increase under high carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in short-term studies due to physiological plasticity. 167 more words


Ocean acidification effect on prokaryotic metabolism tested in two diverse trophic regimes in the Mediterranean Sea

Notwithstanding the increasing amount of researches on the effect of ocean acidification (OA) on marine ecosystems, no consent has emerged on its consequences on many prokaryote-mediated processes. 264 more words


The effects of elevated CO2 and ocean acidification on the production of marine biogenic trace gases

The human-induced increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide since the beginning of the industrial revolution have led to increasing oceanic carbon uptake and changes in seawater carbonate chemistry, resulting in lowering of surface water pH. 282 more words
