Tolerance of juvenile barnacles (Amphibalanus improvisus) to warming and elevated pCO2
Pansch, C.

The Kiel Fjord (Baltic Sea) has large natural variations in carbon dioxide levels. When barnacles from the fjord were raised for 8-12 weeks in warmer seawater under ocean acidification conditions, their growth and condition did not change significantly. Warming increased the shell strength, but ocean acidification conditions had only weak effects. (Laboratory study)
