Invited Speakers:

Jackie Grebmeier (USA) - presents on May 24, Plenary Session

Comparative studies have been one of the leading aspects of the ESSAS program. In this session results from comparative studies of entire ecosystems or of significant ecosystem components (zooplankton, fish, seabirds) will be presented. All papers should compare aspects of two or more systems. These can be among different polar or sub-polar seas or between sub-polar seas and other types of ecosystems, e.g. temperate, tropical, etc. Methods papers, as well as results from comparative studies, will be considered. Papers are sought on the similarities and differences in ecosystem structure and function and the processes that lead to these differences.
