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

Data from this project will be available via the child records.

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 ... View entire text

Variations to work plan or objectives:
The main focus of experiments were changed from fertilisation and larval development of invertebrates to calcification of juvenile echinoderms with existing skeleton under predicted ocean warming and acidification ... View entire text
