Task 1.3: Compare the vulnerability of different life stages and model the implications for population dynamics
Mike Burrows, SAMS
H0 Elevated CO2 x temperature will have no significant impact on the long-term sustainability of marine invertebrate populations.
This task will use existing and newly generated data to model the impacts of CO2 × temperature on population success in marine invertebrates. The models will make use of the large amount of recently published data on invertebrate fertilisation and larval development under high CO2 conditions. However, the models will also require information on the impact of high CO2, temperature and their interactions on complete reproductive cycles and on larval recruitment and settlement. This information will be generated through controlled experiments
