Abstract

© Inter-Research 2016.Ocean acidification is a globally recognised phenomenon, but little is known of its impacts on Antarctic marine microbes. Here we report on the community response of pico- and nanophytoplankton, heterotrophic nanoflagellates (HNF) and prokaryotes (Archaea and Bacteria) to elevated CO2 during 3 minicosm experiments over the 2008/2009 summer at Davis Station, Antarctica. Coastal seawater was incubated in 650 l minicosms (n = 6) for
