Inorganic carbon physiology underpins macroalgal responses to elevated CO2
Description: Beneficial effects of CO2 on photosynthetic organisms will be a key driver of ecosystem change under ocean acidification. Predicting the responses of macroalgal species to ocean acidification is complex, but the authors of this journal article demonstrate that the response of assemblages to elevated CO2 are correlated with inorganic carbon physiology.
