Combined local and global actions could lessen impacts of climate change
Increased oil and gas activities could combine with ocean warming and acidification to have a significant negative impact on marine organisms, a study by the Norwegian Research Centre AS and the University of Plymouth suggests
Sea snail shells dissolve in increasingly acidified oceans, study shows
Researchers from the University of Tsukuba, Japan, and the University of Plymouth, UK, assessed the impact of rising carbon dioxide levels on the large predatory “triton shell” gastropod (Charonia lampas)
Study shows ocean acidification is having major impact on marine life
Scientists from the University of Plymouth, working with colleagues in Japan and Italy, say cuts in global CO2 emissions are essential to limit further damage to coral reefs and kelp forests
Agriculture is destabilising the Earth system, according to new study
University of Plymouth news: In a new study, researchers have explored how agriculture is transgressing nine planetary boundaries
Future climate change may not adversely impact seafood quality, research suggests
Future ocean acidification and warming may not have a marked effect on the taste of oysters grown in the UK, according to new research by the University of Plymouth published in Frontiers in Marine Science
Landmark global scale study reveals potential future impact of Ocean Acidification on species’ distribution
Plymouth University news: Ocean Acidification and the extent to which marine species are able to deal with low pH levels in the seas, could have a significant influence on shifting the distribution of marine animals in response to climate warming.
Study provides first evidence of acidification’s impact on wild fish reproductive behaviour
Plymouth University news: Ocean acidification could have a dramatic impact on the reproductive behaviour of fish, a new international study led by the University of Palermo and Plymouth University shows.
Ocean acidification weighs heavily upon marine algae
Plymouth University news: Scientists have found that marine algae living in waters rich in carbon dioxide suffer reduced performance due to a loss of rigidity in their stems caused by the acidic conditions.
To brood or not to brood: Are marine organisms evolving to protect their offspring in response to ocean acidification?
Plymouth University news: Are marine organisms evolving to protect their offspring in response to ocean acidification?
Rising carbon dioxide levels stunt sea shell growth
Plymouth University news: An international team of researchers finds evidence that some sea creatures are able to trade size for survival in acidic waters - throwing new light on past mass extinctions and potential future climate change scenarios.
