|Title:||Biocalcification of aragonite by tellinid bivalve Macoma birmanica (Philippi) on the tidal mudflat in the Sundarban mangrove forest, north-east coast of India|
Jana, T K
|Abstract:||The annual biocalcification of aragonite by Macoma binnanica was found to be 314.3 g m-2y-1 which is 2.5 times higher than biomass production and almost equal to the elimination rate, 311.4 g m-2y-1. Rapid response of this biogenous aragonite to the processes of neutralization of the anthropogenic carbon dioxide through its dissolution was observed, which was almost close to its maximum capacity.|
