Abstract:

Our long-term goals are to quantify and predict how rapidly and effectively various functional groups of zooplankton aggregate to and exploit localized, transient resource concentrations, such as those represented by thin layers. We are particularly interested in the consequences of transient resource concentrations for the dynamics of planktonic communities over large space and time scales.
