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 […]

Media Release: Silent oceans: acidification stops shrimp chorus

Snapping shrimps, the loudest invertebrate in the ocean, may be silenced under increasing ocean acidification, a University of Adelaide study has found. Published today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the researchers report that under forecast levels of CO2 predicted to be found in oceans by the end of the century, the […]

Media release: Baby fish will be lost at sea in acidified oceans

The ability of baby fish to find a home, or other safe haven, to grow into adulthood will be severely impacted under predicted ocean acidification, University of Adelaide research has found. Published today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the researchers report the interpretation of normal ocean sound cues which help baby […]

Media release: Sharks’ hunting ability destroyed under climate change

The hunting ability and growth of sharks will be dramatically impacted by increased CO2 levels and warmer oceans expected by the end of the century, a University of Adelaide study has found. Published in the journal Scientific Reports, marine ecologists from the University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute report long-term experiments that show warmer waters and […]
