Short summary
In relation to ocean acidification and warming, most studies are focused on specific responses but do not consider species interactions. This study examined experimentally the response of a maerl bed community, composed of calcareous and fleshy algae and grazers, to ocean acidification and warming. Our results indicate that the response of marine communities to climate change will depend on the direct effects on species physiology and the indirect effects due to shifts in species interactions.
