Session 5
Zooplankton in upwelling and coastal systems


Jenny Huggett (Ocean and Coastal Management, South Africa)
Julie Keister (University of Washington, USA)

Invited Speaker:

Rubén Escribano (COPAS, Universidad de Concepción, Chile)

Upwelling and coastal ecosystems exhibit high temporal and spatial variability in their physical and biological structure, are extremely productive, and are important to global fisheriesand biogeochemical cycles. The zooplankton which inhabit these systems are diverse, exhibit a variety of life history strategies and physiological adaptations, and are integral to trophic functioning. In coastal upwelling systems in particular, zooplankton are exposed to strong alongshore and across-shelf circulation and physical gradients which structure their distributions. In addition, coastal regions are under increasing pressure from climate and human impacts that may lead to shifts in species composition, dominance, and distribution. In this session we will examine the behaviors, physiology, community structure, and spatial and temporal patterns of zooplankton in coastal ecosystems. Field, laboratory, and modeling studies will be considered, with an emphasis on studies that elucidate mechanisms of zooplankton variability in these highly dynamic regions.
