Frontiers in Marine Science   5 371   Oct 2018   [Refereed]
Ocean acidification is expected to negatively impact many calcifying marine organisms by impairing their ability to build their protective shells and skeletons, and by causing dissolution and erosion. Here we investigated the large predatory “trit...
