World experts to gather in kiel, germany to address effects of climate change on marine ecosystems

(Oldendorf/Luhe, Germany, 30 September 2006). Carbon dioxide is now entering the ocean at a rate of ~1 million tons per hour, 10 times the natural rate, and this is changing the acidity of the seas. Geological records indicate that the pH changes that have occurred since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution are unique in the last 650,000 years. These changes have the potential to negatively impact corals, eggs and larvae of some fish species, and those animals with skeletons and shells.

World experts, gathering at the 42nd European Marine Biology Symposium in Kiel, Germany in August 2007 (, will address these issues in a special symposium: the Effects of Climate Change on Marine Ecosystems (

The Symposium is sponsored by the international journal Climate Research (, and the Inter-Research Science Center ( Topics to be covered include the effects of changing temperature, pH and CO2 on marine organisms and ecosystems. Contributed papers are invited and student participation is encouraged (some financial support for students is available).

We invite you to join world-renowned experts to discuss these issues: August 27-31, 2007, at the Auditorium Maximum of Christian-Albrechts-University, Kiel, Germany.
