Testing hypotheses on the causality of long-term changes in zooplankton abundance
Entry ID: GLOBEC_064_UK_014

Abstract: A large proportion of the variability in abundance of the copepod Calanus,
which is a major food item of larval and adult fish around the British Isles,
can be related to the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), but causal links have
