Nature-Boyd et al. (2022): Potential negative effects of ocean afforestation on offshore ecosystems

Philip W. Boyd, Lennart T. Bach, Catriona L. Hurd, Ellie Paine, John A. Raven, Veronica Tamsitt IN: Nat Ecol Evol (2022).

The authors present model simulations of ocean afforestation and link these to lessons from other examples of offshore dispersal, including rafting plastic debris, and discuss the ramifications for offshore ecosystems. They explore what additional metrics are required to assess the ecological implications of this proposed CDR.
