Most of our knowledge of the direct effects of ocean acidification on marine organisms focuses on species known as "marine calcifiers" (e.g., corals, mollusks) that build skeletons or shells made of calcium carbonate.

Ocean Acidification

Planktonic calcifiers (such as coccolithophores, foramnifera, euthecosomatous and pteropods) - Experiments have shown that 5 out of 6 species show 6-60% decreases in calcification with decreases in pH.

Ocean Acidification and the UNFCCC

Ocean Acidification and the UNFCCC 5 | Page may make some surface waters corrosive to the shells and skeletons made of the more soluble forms of calcium carbonate. 18 This means that ocean acidification is not only likely to decrease the ability of some calcifiers to build their protective coverings by ...

Monaco Declaration

By the time that atmospheric CO 2 reaches 450 ppm, it is projected that large areas of the polar oceans will have become corrosive to shells of key marine calcifiers.

Moreover, it is not clear whether the responses of calcifiers and non-calcifiers are shaped via similar mechanisms. Such knowledge is needed to answer this question and is critical for a comparative assessment of sensitivities.

"This influx of anthropogenic CO 2 is causing the world's oceans to become more acidic, to the detriment of corals and other marine calcifiers, including plankton, which occupies the base of marine food webs.
