Marine acidification effects on reproduction and growth rates of Corallinaceae spores (Rhodophyta)

A study on the effect of marine acidification on the production and surface increase of Corallinales spores was realized in an artificial controlled culture. The increase of CO concentration in the artificial culture inhibited Corallinaceae spore production and growth, and caused an increase in the mortality of germination disks.
