Seawater carbonate chemistry during experiments with Patella vulgata, 2010, supplement to: Marchant, Hannah K; Calosi, Piero; Spicer, John I (2010): Short-term exposure to hypercapnia does not compromise feeding, acid–base balance or respiration of Patella vulgata but surprisingly is accompanied by radula damage.

The effect of short-term (5 days) exposure to CO2-acidified seawater (year 2100 predicted values, ocean pH = 7.6) on key aspects of the function of the intertidal common limpet Patella vulgata (Gastropoda: Patellidae) was investigated. Changes in extracellular acid-base balance were almost completely compensated by an increase in bicarbonate ions. A concomitant increase in haemolymph Ca2+ and visible shell dissolution implicated passive shell dissolution as the bicarbonate source. Analysis of the radula using SEM revealed...
