This clearly reduces the number of plants that can't exist with increases in salinity, but does it increase the amount of plants capable of living with salt(ier)-water? I'm curious how this shift affects the ecosystem ability to process CO2 -- let's say the number of "plants" remains the same, but the type of plants change, and the type of plants with the ability to process CO2 changes.
