Ocean acidification alters properties of the exoskeleton in adult Tanner crabs, Chionoecetes bairdi
(The Company of Biologists, 2021-02)
Ocean acidification can affect the ability of calcifying organisms to build and maintain mineralized tissue. In decapod crustaceans, the exoskeleton is a multilayered structure composed of chitin, protein and mineral, ...
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 ...
