Effects of rising ocean temperatures on survival and growth of important seaweeds in Atlantic Canada

Climate warming is affecting an increasing number of species in the world’s ocean. Here, we used a multi-factorial laboratory experiment to test the effects of warming sea surface temperatures on the survival and growth of selected ecologically and economically important seaweeds in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. These seaweeds provide essential three-dimensional habitat to a range of associated species and some support a commercial harvest, thus their future in a warming ocean is important to both marine ecosystems and humans.
