BIOACID II WP 2.6: [subproject] Biologische Auswirkungen der Ozeanversauerung; Vorhaben: Auswirkungen v. Stress auf die Biogeochemie

Stress impacts on the biogeochemistry of macrophyte communities & calcification at small spatial and temporal scales

It is planned to participate in the mesocosm core experiments in Kiel and Sylt where different stress combinations (elevated pCO2, increased temperature and/or nutrient levels) will be applied in comparison to reference or single stress situations to investigate the response of macrophytes and calcifiers from North Sea and the Baltic Sea.
