Production, Growth and Retention of Zooplankton and Ichthyoplankton on the Western Bank of the Scotian Shelf, Canada
Entry ID: GLOBEC_029_CAN_006

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The interaction of local and meso-scale physical and biological
seasonality and the timing of critical events were shown to be important in the
persistence of zooplankton and larval fish on Western Bank. The research has
addressed simple, tractable and field-ready circulation models that are used in
near real-time to direct sampling in the field at the biologically appropriate
temporal and spatial ... View entire text

Purpose: This research was directed at quantifying the linkages between the
physical environment and the food-web coupling of zooplankton and larval fish
in a typical continental shelf ecosystem.
