Literature search : identify a few keywords based on the guiding question above, and perform a search on Web of Science to find articles to answer it. Recommended sources: You may only use articles from the listed high- impact journal to answer this question. To narrow your search to the specified journals in Web of Science, click on “Source Titles” on the left and pick the journals of interest, and click on “Refine”. To get only review articles, click on “Document Type” and pick “Review”. Keywords : [nearly one third of anthropogenic carbon dioxide has been taken up by the oceans, resulting lower concentrations of carbonate ions and higher concentration. This has a significant impact of coral reef because, coral reef depend on carbonate ions for future reef accretion Coral reefs are biodiversity hotspots and provide habitat to a myriad of organisms, including many fish species. Loss of coral cover, whether due to OA, warming or other pressures on the reef, will lead to a shift in fish communities from species that prefer coral habitats toward species which are successful outside reef settings ( Pratchett et al., 2008 ), with associated potential changes to important reef fisheries. ] References : [ Changes in the metabolic potential of the sponge microbiome under ocean acidification ] Information that you found from your research to help answer the above question : [ Anthropogenic CO2 emissions are causing ocean acidification, which can affect the physiology of marine organisms. Research conducted at natural CO2 seeps over the past decade has revealed substantial changes in the population structure of a wide range of organisms4,5. Studies have assessed impacts on species diversity and abundance4,5,7,8, gene expression9, as well as functional potential of eukaryotic communities10. From a microbial perspective, OA has also been shown to modify the composition of the microbiome in some reef species11–13. Question 5: Briefly describe how ocean acidification (another major related global change agent/phenomenon) affects coral reefs. Also briefly describe the reasons for ocean acidification.
