ArticleIncorporating benthic community changes into hydrochemical-based projections of coral reef calcium carbonate production under ocean acidificationPhinn, Stuart R.The existence of coral reefs is dependent on the production and maintenance of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) framework that is produced through calcification. The net production of CaCO3 will likely decline in the future, from both declining net calcifica . . .
ArticleNitrogen source and pCO2 synergistically affect carbon allocation, growth and morphology of the coccolithophore Emiliania huxleyi: potential implications of ocean acidification for the carbon cycleRossignol, Pascale E.Coccolithophores are unicellular phytoplankton that produce calcium carbonate coccoliths as an exoskeleton. Emiliania huxleyi, the most abundant coccolithophore in the world’s ocean, plays a major role in the global carbon cycle by regulating the exch . . .
