Interactive effects of ocean acidification and warming on subtidal mussels and sea stars from Atlantic Canada
Keppel, E.A.

Sea stars collected in Nova Scotia, Canada, grew more slowly under ocean acidification conditions, and their growth rate decreased further with a warmer temperature. In contrast, blue mussel grew more quickly with no response to temperature within the tested range. Predation of sea stars on mussels, measured as per-capita consumption rate, decreased in acidified conditions by 50 percent. (Laboratory study)
