Workshop 3
Updates and comparisons of zooplankton time series


David Mackas (Institute of Ocean Sciences, Fisheries and Oceans Canada)
Martin Edwards (Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science, UK)

Invited Speaker:

Jenny Huggett (Department of Environmental Affairs, South Africa)

Zooplankton time series data are becoming not only more available, but also more widely used as diagnostics of change in marine ecosystems. Since the last International Zooplankton Symposium (2007), a lot has happened. Several new time series sampling programs (rich but brief in 2007) have become long enough to support broader analyses. SCOR Working Group 125 carried out comparisons among many of the earlier and longer time series. New visualization and statistical tools have been developed and applied. And several ocean regions have undergone very strong fluctuations of climate and zooplankton composition. For the 2011 workshop, part of the schedule will be contributed papers. We continue to be especially interested in between-regional teleconnections of decadal fluctuations, and in zooplankton time series that go beyond biomass to include information on variability of community composition, zoogeographic distributions, phenology, and/or physiological condition, and in papers that examine the role of zooplankton in marine ecosystem change and resilience. However, we will also reserve time for on-site demos, discussions, and synthesis efforts (so please bring your laptops, stocked with data tables and favorite analysis tools in addition to your polished presentations).
