Abstract

Jodi Thomas investigated the response of the squid nervous system to elevated carbon dioxide (CO2). She found that a complex assortment of multiple mechanisms likely underpins behavioural and physiological responses to elevated CO2. This mechanistic understanding will help identify which animals will be most vulnerable to rising seawater CO2 levels.
