Seasonal and species-specific response of five brown macroalgae to high atmospheric CO2
Longphuirt, S.N.

Four species of intertidal brown seaweeds increased their uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) as ambient CO2 concentration increased, while one other species did not. The amount of increased CO2 uptake changed seasonally with temperature, and for one species the results indicated that future impacts of increased CO2 would be greatest during the spring growth period.
