Session 3
Zooplankton life histories: Spatial connectivity, dormancy, and life cycle closure

Invited Speaker:

Don Deibel (Memorial University, Canada)

Each zooplankton species has its own set of life history traits, influencedby its taxonomic lineage (e.g., gelatinous zooplankton, copepods, euphausids), the physical characteristics of the environment in which it resides and the suite of other species with which it interacts. In seasonal environments, life histories may include a dormant phase, which may occur at any life stage and vary in intensity from almost complete shutdown of metabolism to merely arrested reproductive activity. Losses from a population due to advection during dormancy or active phases may prevent life cycle closure, for example in upwelling zones, determining which species are dominant. Immigration from other populations may be required to sustain species abundance within a particular region. In this session we encourage presentations that together will depict the variety of zooplankton life histories across all taxonomic groups and how they interact with the physical environment at local, regional or basin scales to determine species abundance and diversity patterns.
