Abstract:

LONG TERM GOALS. The long term goal of this project is to advance understanding of the coupling between physical and biological processes in the recruitment dynamics of marine populations by sponsoring an international symposium devoted to this issue. OBJECTIVES. The specific objectives of the project are 1 to organize and convene an international symposium devoted to the topic of physical-biological linkages in recruitment processes and 2 prepare a special issue of the ICES Journal of Marine Science based on contributions to the symposium. APPROACH. The symposium was organized and publicized under the aegis of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea ICES as principal sponsor of the meeting. Papers and poster contributions were solicited and reviewed by an international steering committee. A total of 104 papers was selected for oral presentation and 42 poster contributions were accepted for display by the steering committee. The meeting featured an opening session comprising invited papers on the first day followed by two days of contributed papers in concurrent sessions.
