Two longer data sets on krill predators suggest that such events may occur two or three times in a decade, and that the situation normally returns to normal in the following season. It seems most unlikely that these events can be ascribed to features of krill biology. Simple models of recruitment failure or mortality cannot explain the observed changes, and… CONTINUE READING
