Ocean in a High-CO2 World

Third International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World. Monterey, California. September 24-27, 2012.

  • Gretchen Hofmann gives a plenary address on Monday, September 24 "Acclimation and adaptation to ocean acidification: Genomics, physiology, and behavior".
  • Other talks include:
    • "Resistance to CO2-driven seawater acidification in larval purple sea urchins" (Sep 24; Tyler Evans and Gretchen Hofmann)
    • "Transcriptome-wide scan reveals genes potentially affected by ocean acidification in red abalone (Haliotis rufescens) along the California coast" (Sep 24; Pierre DeWit and Stephen R. Palumbi)
    • "Persistent, multistressor effects across life stage transitions in Olympia Oysters" (Sep 25; Annaliese Hettinger, Brian Gaylord, Eric Sanford, Tessa Hill, and Ann Russell).
