Differential zooplankton trophic responses to environmental perturbations in the California Current Ecosystem

Poster Number:  396 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael Landry 15N isotopic compositions of zooplankton species in the California Current Ecosystem (CCE) vary over interannual and decadal scales of climate variability, but the extent to which those

Predator: prey size relationships of marine zooplankton: Testing the 10:1 hypothesis with stable isotopes

Poster Number:  395 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael Landry Size-based theories of energy flow in marine plankton ecosystems, as well as numerous conceptual models, assume that predators and prey are linked, on average, by a body length ratio of 10:1. 

Photochemical Degradation of Strong Natural Iron-Binding Ligands in the California Current Ecosystem

Poster Number:  388 Presenter/Primary Author:  Randelle Bundy The speciation of iron has been shown to be significantly affected by photochemical processes in the surface ocean, altering both the redox state and organic complexation of iron.

Pelagic community responses to a deep-water front in the California Current Ecosystem: The CCE A-Front Study

Poster Number:  386 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael Landry In October 2008, we investigated pelagic community composition and biomass, from bacteria to fish, across a sharp frontal gradient overlying deep waters south of Point Conception, California.
