Combined effect of pCO2 and temperature levels on the thermal niche in the early benthic ontogeny of a keystone species

Highlights

• At 20 °C at both pCO2 levels similar thermal tolerance polygons were obtained.

• Acidification expanded the thermal tolerance polygons at 10 °C.

• Acidification reduced the thermal tolerance polygons at 25 °C.

• Regardless of the pCO2 levels, growth increased from 10 °C to 20 °C acclimation

• Regardless of the pCO2 levels, growth was reduced when individuals were acclimated to 25 °C
