Short summary
Most previous studies concerning the effects of environmental changes on marine organisms have been carried out under photosynthetically active radiation only conditions, with solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) not being considered. In this study, we found that UVR can counteract the negative effects of the greenhouse treatment on the calcification rate to photosynthesis rate ratio, and may be a key stressor when considering the impacts of future greenhouse conditions on E. huxleyi.
