The effects of Climate Change in the form of pH, temperature, and salinity variation on crab shell formation were assessed. By the year 2100, projections based on “business-as-usual” emissions suggest a further doubling ...
Ocean acidification leads to altered micromechanical properties of the mineralized cuticle in juvenile red and blue king crabs
Ocean acidification (OA) adversely affects a broad range of marine calcifying organisms. Crustaceans, however, exhibit mixed responses to OA, with growth or survival negatively affected in some species, but unaffected or ...
The effect of hydrophobic alkyl silane self-assembled monolayers on adult barnacle adhesion
