• Analyzing the Impacts of Elevated-CO2 Levels on the Development of a Subtropical Zooplankton Community During Oligotrophic Conditions and Simulated Upwelling 

      Alguero-Muniz, Maria; Horn, Henriette G.; Alvarez-Fernandez, Santiago; Spisla, Carsten; Aberle-Malzahn, Nicole; Bach, Lennart T.; Guan, Wanchun; Achterberg, Erik P.; Riebesell, Ulf; Boersma, Maarten (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Ocean acidification (OA) is affecting marine ecosystems through changes in carbonate chemistry that may influence consumers of phytoplankton, often via trophic pathways. Using a mesocosm approach, we investigated OA effects ...
    • Food web changes under ocean acidification promote herring larvae survival 

      Sswat, Michael; Stiasny, Martina; Taucher, Jan; Alguero-Muñiz, Maria; Bach, Lennart T; Jutfelt, Fredrik; Riebesell, Ulf; Clemmesen, Catriona (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Ocean acidification—the decrease in seawater pH due to rising CO2 concentrations—has been shown to lower survival in early life stages of fish and, as a consequence, the recruitment of populations including commercially ...
    • Growth performance and survival of larval Atlantic herring, under the combined effects of elevated temperatures and CO2 

      Sswat, Michael; Stiasny, Martina, H.; Jutfelt, Fredrik; Riebesell, Ulf; Clemmesen, Catriona (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In the coming decades, environmental change like warming and acidification will affect life in the ocean. While data on single stressor effects on fish are accumulating rapidly, we still know relatively little about ...
    • Ocean acidification causes no detectable effect on swimming activity and body size in a common copepod 

      Almen, Anna-Karin; Brutemark, Andreas; Jutfelt, Fredrik; Riebesell, Ulf; Engström-Ost, Jonna (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Ocean acidification can impair an animal’s physiological performance and energetically demanding activities such as swimming. Behavioural abnormalities and changed activity in response to ocean acidification are reported ...
    • Toxic algal bloom induced by ocean acidification disrupts the pelagic food web 

      Riebesell, Ulf; Aberle-Malzahn, Nicole; Achterberg, Eric P.; Algueró-Muniz, Marina; Alvarez-Fernandez, Santiago; Arístegui, Javier; Bach, Lennart T; Boersma, Maarten; Boxhammer, Tim; Guan, W; Haunost, Mathias; Horn, Henriette G.; Löscher, Caroline R.; Ludwig, Andrea; Spisla, Carsten; Sswat, Michael; Stange, Paul; Taucher, Jan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Ocean acidification, the change in seawater carbonate chemistry due to the uptake of anthropogenic CO2, affects the physiology of marine organisms in multiple ways1. Diverse competitive and trophic interactions transform ...
