- ... The impacts of ocean acidification on coastal biofilms are poorly understood. Carbon dioxide vent areas provide an opportunity to make predictions about the impacts of ocean acidification. We compared biofilms that colonised glass slides in areas exposed to ambient and elevated levels of pCO₂ along a coastal pH gradient, with biofilms grown at ambient and reduced light levels. Biofilm production w ...
