Summary
Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) project 3134.

This metadata record deals specifically with the objectives relating to "Effects of Ocean Warming and Ocean Acidification on the Echinoderm Sterechinus neumayeri".

These data are published in the following paper: Ericson, JA and Ho, MA and Miskelly, A and King, CK and Virtue, P and Tilbrook, BD and Byrne, M, Combined effects of two ocean change stressors, warming and acidification, on fertilization and early development of the Antarctic echinoid Sterechinus neumayeri, Polar Biology, online, (online) pp. 1-8. ISSN 0722-4060 (2011)

The study examined the effects of decreased seawater pH and increased seawater temperature on Sterechinus neumayeri fertilisation and embryology. Experiments were carried out in the laboratories at Davis Station, Antarctica during the 2010/2011 summer season as part of a wider research programme looking at the effects of climate change and human impacts on Antarctic marine invertebrates. The research was conducted under project 3134 'Vulnerability of Antarctic marine benthos to increased temperatures and ocean acidification associated with climate change'.


Public
Ocean acidification and warming are global phenomena that will impact marine biota through the 21st century. This project will provide urgently needed predictive information on the likely survivorship of benthic invertebrates in near shore Antarctic environments that is crucial for risk assessment of potential future changes to oceans. As oceans acidify carbonate saturation decreases, reducing the material required to produce marine skeletons. By examining the effects of increased ocean temperature and acidification on planktonic and benthic life stages of both calcifying and non-calcifying ecologically important organisms, predictions can be made on the potential vulnerability of marine biota to climatic change.
