New Paper: Rising CO2, Ocean Acidification and Food Web Collapse

A new paper published in Global Change Ecology shows our coastal food webs could be on the brink of collapse due to rising CO2 levels causing oceans acidification. The research led by Environment Institute Member, Silvan Goldenberg, a PhD candidate found that increased temperature and CO2 levels had an overall detrimental effect on their simulated ocean environment. Environment […]
