Clam feeding plasticity reduces herbivore vulnerability to ocean warming and acidification


Nature Climate Change, Published online: 20 January 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-019-0679-2

Changes in ocean temperature and pH will impact on species, as well as impacting on community interactions. Here warming and acidification cause a clam species to change their feeding mode, with cascading effects for the marine sedimentary food web.
