The metabolic response of thecosome pteropods from the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans to high CO2 and low O2

Amy E. Maas et al.

Data sets

Pteropod respiration rates from NW Atlantic and NE Pacific; OC473 (2011) and NH1208 (2012) AE Maas

Short summary
The objective of this study was to determine whether natural variation in environmental exposure changes the sensitivity of thecosome pteropods to high CO2 and low O2 by comparing individuals from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Of the species studied, no thecosome showed a change in oxygen consumption in response to high CO2 alone. Only one species, Limacina retroversa from the Atlantic, showed a reduced metabolic rate in response to the combined treatment.
