    Carbon dioxide seeps in marine environments act as ‘natural labs’ for studying the impact of ocean acidification on benthic calcifiers. Focusing on the effects of an increased CO2 concentration on population density and biomineralization, this study helps explain species-specific responses to ocean acidification, and reveals some evidence of phenotypic plasticity that may improve the persistence of marine species in low pH conditions.
