Wide diversity in the environmental stress response
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01375

Summary

Abstract:
Three species of Antarctic marine invertebrate: Nacella concinna (limpet), Paraceradocus miersi (crustacean) and Sterechinus neumayeri (urchin) were subjected to three different rates of warming and a two month acclimation trial at 2 degrees Celsius. The rates of warming were 1 degree Celsius per hour, 1 degree Celsius per day and 1 degree Celsius per 3 days. Animals were evaluated to determine whether there was a universal stress response at the cellular level.

Funding was provided from the BAS National Capability Grant, funded by the UKRI Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
