Ocean acidification promotes cellular burst on photosynthetic (kleptoplastic) sea slugs

Ocean acidification is known to trigger deleterious effects on several marine photosynthetic invertebrates. Photosymbiosis, whereby photosynthetic microorganisms or organelles live inside an animal (host) is widespread in the marine biota, underlying a wide range of ecologically and biogeochemically significant processes that remain largely unclear.
