Cumulative effects of climate warming and eutrophication on the habitat-forming rockweed Ascophyllum nodosum

Many coastal species are affected by a variety of human activities, such as nutrient loading, chemical run-off, harvesting, habitat alteration and increasingly also climate change. In this study, we used a multi-factorial laboratory experiment to test the cumulative effects of climate warming and nutrient loading on an important, habitat-forming intertidal seaweed, the rockweed Ascophyllum nodosum, which provides important ecological functions as well as economic services.
