Session 4
Small-scale biological-chemical-physical interactions in the plankton


David Fields (Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, USA)

Invited Speaker:

John Dower (University of Victoria, BC, Canada)

Processes that occur at the level of the individual animal drive large scale distribution patterns of zooplankton populations. At the scale of the individual, motility, feeding rates, detection of signals, and encounter rates with other individuals are the product of the interactions between the individual and physical properties of their environment (e.g. viscosity, fluidmotion, diffusion). Research on this topic is inherently interdisciplinary. It includes fluiddynamics across the viscous-inertial ranges, the study of functional morphology and structural analysis, investigations into the sensory perception of both mechanical and chemical cues, and much more. In this session, we invite contributions that explore the intimate interactions of zooplankton with their prey, predators, conspecifics,and their environment, framed within the context of large-scale distribution patterns of zooplankton.
