Ecophysiological responses of mollusks to oceanic acidification

The ocean, which plays an important role in buffering the rise of atmospheric CO2, is a vital carbon reservoir absorbing approximately 24 million tons of CO2 per day, accounting for approximately a quarter of the carbon dioxide produced by human activities (Sabine et al. 2004, Le Quere et al. 2010). The absorption is not entirely benign, and the ‘ocean acidification’ caused by the large amount of CO2 entering the ocean has been considered to be “another CO2 question brought by climate change” (Doney et al. 2009).
