Health and population-dependent effects of ocean acidification on the marine isopod Idotea balthica
Wood, H.L.

The immune responses of grazing isopods (Idotea balthica) in the Baltic Sea dropped by 60 to 80 percent after the isopods were placed in ocean acidification conditions for 20 days. In addition, isopods from a low salinity site, where their health was already compromised, suffered 100 percent mortality when placed in ocean acidification conditions. (Laboratory study)
