AbstractThe Mediterranean Sea should be especially sensitive to the anthropogenic increase in atmospheric CO2. There is debate, however, on whether the acidification is taking place more rapidly in the Mediterranean than in the global oceans. In addition, the confluence of multiple processes that takes place in coastal areas makes even harder to predict the future trends of seawater pH and the associated vulnerability in these areas. In this context, at the Institut de Ciències del Mar, CSIC, we have been undertaking research to gain insight on the acidification problem in the Mediterranean Sea from different angles, one of them by running pH manipulative experiments on a broad array of organisms, in some instances combined with warming. In this presentation we will show the main results obtained from a long-term manipulative experiment in which the Mediterranean temperate corals Astroides calycularis and Leptopsammia pruvoti were exposed to three levels of pH and two temperatures, following an annual cycle. Overall, we found that the response of the studied corals to these two stressors was species-dependent.
