The vulnerability of the marine ecosystem

The vulnerability of the marine ecosystem

CO2 threatens the sea balance due to the decrease in pH. This process called acidification has very unfavorable consequences for marine ecosystems.

The decrease in pH affects oceanic plankton and corals and bivalves, which alter their cellular mechanisms of basic functioning.

A CSIC study confirms the “high vulnerability” of the Mediterranean to acidification.

Climate change is threatening the future of the seas and oceans, let’s not forget them!
