Experimenting with multistressors

Understanding climate change impacts on species and ecosystems is complex, as individual systems will be exposed to different effects. Ocean acidification is one example stressor (or driver), but it is unlikely to occur in isolation; climate change will result in multiple stressors to organisms, such as warming, nutrient changes and stratification of the water column. All of these will affect and interact with each other in different ways. To date, most research has considered a single stressor. To understand what the future ocean may look like, there is a need to consider many possible permutations of stressors, and their synergies and antagonistic effects.
