... for organisms to “calcify”  Corals and other coralline algae may be significantly threatened; data suggest reduced growth  May strongly favor communities dominated by fleshy species  All tropical invasive algae are fleshy/non-calcified spp. and may become more successful as calcifiers ...

Ocean acidification, the 'other CO 2 problem, may precipitate serious consequences for numerous marine organisms over the near term, in particular calcifiers at the bottom of the food web.

The Tasmanian Geologist

Adding carbon dioxide (CO 2) to the ocean alters the carbonate chemistry and lowers pH, making surface waters more acidic and decreasing the carbonate ions available to calcifiers for calcite and aragonite production.

Much effort has been invested during the last years in studying calcification processes in coccolithophores (e.g., Westbroek et al. 1989; Holligan et al. 1993), however, the net effect of these organisms as calcifiers in the global carbon cycle may be reduced because they photosynthesize and calcify at ...

Instead, aquatic plants, including various angiosperms, cyanobacteria, and especially the alga Chara, appeared to be the dominant calcifiers. Davis also noted that some plants calcify far more than others and speculated that simple photosynthetic CO2 removal from the water was not the only cause of ...

The influence of ocean acidification on marine organisms other than calcifiers, could include decreased reproductive potential, slower growth or increased susceptibility to disease.
