Abstract

• Arbacia lixula and Paracentrotus lividus were differently affected at low seawater pH exposure.• P. lividus skeleton integrity was not affected by low seawater pH.• Arbacia lixula exposed to low seawater pH near CO2 vent showed decreased skeletal integrity.• pH exposure leads to changes in biomineralization-related genes expression.• Acid-base regulation capacity is linked with a better tolerance to low seawater pH.
