Session 7
Zooplankton physiology and bioenergetics


Andrew Hirst (Queen Mary University of London, UK)
Maria Koski (National Institute of Aquatic Resources, Technical University of Denmark)

Invited Speaker:

Robert Campbell (University of Rhode Island, USA)

The physiological and bioenergetics of zooplankton are central to nutrient recycling, food-web transfer efficiencyand biogeochemical transformations (such as the modificationof sinking flux)in the world oceans. If we are to understand and model biogeochemical processes across a range of scales, we need to continue to refineour understanding of the transformations which zooplankton make. Further, physiology and bioenergetics are closely allied to a species fitness,and hence species success. This session aims to describe zooplankton physiology, to present frameworks on what shapes these rates, and our ability to improve their prediction. We expect to provide insights into the effects of physiological adaptations on individual fitness,food-web processes and global biogeochemical cycles, including considerations of changing environmental conditions.
