Marine Ecosystems and Climate Variation: The North Atlantic: A Comparative Perspective

Nils Chr. Stenseth, Geir Ottersen, James W. Hurrell, and Andrea Belgrano


This book focuses on the influence of climate variability on the marine ecosystems of the North Atlantic. The ecological impact of climate variability on population dynamics is addressed at the full range of trophic levels, from phytoplankton through zooplankton and fish to marine birds. Climate effects on biodiversity and community structure are also examined. The book discusses what is currently known about how climate affects the ecological systems of the North Atlantic, and then places these insights within a broader ecological perspective. Many of the general features of the North Atlanti ... More

Keywords: North Atlantic, climate variability, population dynamics, biodiversity, community structures, plankton populations, community ecology
