Evaluating the effects of ocean acidification on the mechanics and structures of southern tanner crab mineralized tissue
(National Shellfisheries Association, 2015)
Increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide have led to a reduction in the pH of ocean waters (i.e. ocean acidification, OA) and an associated drop in calcium carbonate saturation states. In many taxa, these changes ...
Shell growth, mechanics, and structural properties of adult & juvenile barnacles
Barnacles are found throughout the world’s oceans, and their success depends on a hard, mineralized, outer shell that protects the soft tissue. Prevention and removal of barnacles from vessels and structures in the ocean ...
Assessing the effects of climate change on Antarctic and snow crabs
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 ...
The effect of helium ion radiation on the material properties of bone
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, ...
Distribution of select cement proteins in the acorn barnacle Amphibalanus amphitrite
Acorn barnacles are major marine fouling organisms. Their success is largely due to an ability to adhere to diverse substrates via a sub-micron thick proteinaceous adhesive layer that develops as the organism molts and ...
Shotgun proteomics reveals physiological response to ocean acidification in Crassostrea gigas
(BioMed Central, 2014)
Background: Ocean acidification as a result of increased anthropogenic CO2 emissions is occurring in marine and estuarine environments worldwide. The coastal ocean experiences additional daily and seasonal fluctuations in ...
Meta-analysis suggests negative, but 𝘱CO₂-specific, effects of ocean acidification on the structural and functional properties of crustacean biomaterials
(Wiley Open Access, 2022-06)
Crustaceans comprise an ecologically and morphologically diverse taxonomic group. They are typically considered resilient to many environmental perturbations found in marine and coastal environments, due to effective ...
