Mechanistic studies on the physiology of CO2 tolerance in cephalopods

Elevated environmental CO2 concentrations (hypercapnia) are a stressor that has lately received considerable attention: anthropogenic CO2 emissions are predicted to lead to a rise in surface ocean pCO2 from 0.04 kPa up to 0.08 - 0.14 kPa within this century. The increased hydration of CO2 changes seawater...
