Coherence of long-term variations of zooplankton in two sectors of the California Current System
Two tests for ecosystem shifts, a sequential algorithm and the cumulative sum of anomalies approach, failed to detect changes in 1976–1977 in total carbon biomass, displacement volume, or most individual major taxa, suggesting that aggregated biomass is an insensitive indicator of climate forcing.
Long-term changes in pelagic tunicates of the California Current
The recurrence patterns and biogeographic distributions of both salps and doliolids suggest that the warm phase of the California Current was accompanied by at least some intervals of anomalous transport “seeding” organisms from the south.
Oceanographic conditions west of the Baja California coast, 2002-2003:A weak El Niño and subarctic water enhancement
Oceanographic conditions in the Pacific waters off Baja California are described for the period 2002–2003. Anomalies in the temperature-salinity relationshi...
Production of the Euphausiid Nyctiphanes simplex in Vizcaíno Bay, Western Baja California
The reproductive pattern during fall in Vizcaino Bay seemed to be related to local eddy development in which adults were retained, and 3 spawning events seem to be the usual quota per female.
Zooplankton anomalies in the California Current system before and during the warm ocean conditions of 2005
[1] Zooplankton in the California Current had large anomalies in biomass and composition in 2005. The zone most strongly affected extended from northern California to southern British Columbia, where
The State of the California Current, 2005-2006: Warm in the North, cold in the South.
This report summarizes the recent state of the California Current System (CCS), primarily during the period April 2005 through early 2006, and includes observations of ocean conditions made from
Ecology of the Ocean Sunfish, Mola mola, in the southern California Current System
Satellite tag and ecosystem data suggest that bio-physical interactions in coastal upwelling fronts create favorable foraging habitat in M. mola.

Plankton response to El Nino 1997-1998 and La Nina 1999 in the southern region of the California Current
Abstract The IMECOCAL Program began in 1997, with the objective of sampling plankton systematically in the Mexican region of the California Current. We present results of chlorophyll a concentrations
Fatty Acid Composition and Community Structure of Plankton from the San Lorenzo Channel, Gulf of California
The structure of the plankton community and fatty acid composition of nano-, micro- and zooplankton are described during four seasons of 1994 from the San Lorenzo Channel and a strong decrease in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) occurred during the warm months.
