Effects of ocean acidification and elevated temperature on shell plasticity and its energetic basis in an intertidal gastropod.
Melatunan, S.

Common periwinkles had lower shell growth rates and less increase in shell thickness when grown in ocean acidification conditions, warmer temperatures, or both. Shells were also less pointed and more rounded. Those changes in shell growth appeared to result from disruption of the periwinkle's metabolism. (Laboratory studied)
