Scientific Programme BIOACID I

Five thematic areas have been identified which cover the range of processes from the base of the marine food chain to the community and ecosystem level, and of mechanisms from the sub-cellular to the whole organism level. In view of their distinct sensitivities to ocean acidification, calcification and carbonate dissolution processes will be the focal point of a separate theme. According to these research priorities the scientific programme of BIOACID I is structured as follows:
