Stop Marine Pollution to Protect Kelp Forests
Description: Marine biologists have found that reducing nutrient pollution in coastal marine environments should help protect kelp forests from the damaging effects of rising CO2. The researchers have found a combined effect on kelp forests from nutrient pollution and higher CO2. When they manipulated CO2 and nutrient levels in an experimental marine ecosystem they found the effect of both of them together was greater than the sum of their individual impacts.
