MILLER ET AL.: DISTRIBUTION OF PELAGIC THALIACEANS DURING A PERIOD OF MASS OCCURRENCE WITHIN THE CALIFORNIA CURRENT

The spatial distribution, abundance, and size variability of two pelagic tunicate species, Thetys vagina and Pyrosoma atlanticum, were examined from midwater trawl surveys to assess the historical

Ecological relevance of salps and doliolids in the northern Benguela Upwelling System

Thaliacea (Tunicata) are fragile pelagic organisms, switching between sexual and asexual reproduction during their life cycle, occasionally occurring in massive blooms. During these blooms they graze

Changes in dominance of copepods off Baja California during the 1997-1999 El Niño and La Niña

Changes in copepod species composition were analyzed from September-October 1997 to April 1999. The community changed substantially between El Nino 1997-1998 and La Nina 1998- 1999, following trends

Biology and distribution of salps in the subarctic Northeast Pacific

Historical samples collected from 1985 to 2020 in coastal and open ocean regions of the Northeast Pacific were utilised to explore salp assemblage composition, morphometrics, and ontogeny of dominant

ZOOPLANKTON FUNCTIONAL GROUPS FROM THE CALIFORNIA CURRENT AND CLIMATE VARIABILITY DURING 1997-2013

Zooplankton plays an important role in recycling matter and energy trough the pelagic ecosystem. The California Current is one of the large marine ecosystems with high productivity and bio-physical

Long-term changes in zooplankton volumes in the California Current System - The Baja California region

"retrospeciive anaiysis oi zooplankton volumes (1951 to 1996) was performed for the area between Punta Baja (30°N) and Punta Abreojos (26 ?ON) in relatlon to the warming anomaly that has taken place

Production of Fraser River sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) in relation to decadal-scale changes in the climate and the ocean

The response of Fraser River sockeye to climate changes may be a specific example of a more general response by a number of species of fishes in the Pacific and perhaps in other oceans.

Geographic Distribution and Relative Abundance of Salpidae off the Oregon Coast

Six species of salps were identified from 437 midwater trawl and 202 plankton net collections off Oregon from 1961 to 1964: Helicosalpa virgula, Iasis zonaria, Salpa fusiformis, Pegea confoederata,

Interdecadal variation in developmental timing of Neocalanus plumchrus populations at Ocean Station P in the subarctic North Pacific

A single copepod species, Neocalanus plumchrus (Marukawa), makes up much of the mesozooplankton biomass in the subarctic Pacific, and seasonal phasing of this annual maximum has shifted dramatically between 1956 and the present.

Seasonal and nonseasonal variations in zooplankton biomass in the California Current system are examined from CalCOFI measurements over the period 1951-82. Seasonal signals indicate that total

Effects of sea-ice extent and krill or salp dominance on the Antarctic food web

Data from 1995 and 1996 are provided that support hypothesized relationships between krill, salps and region-wide sea-ice conditions and suggest that decreased krill availability may affect the levels of their vertebrate predators.

Increases in jellyfish biomass in the Bering Sea: implications for the ecosystem

The hypothesis that the presence of these large carnivores has affected fisheries resources, either through direct predation on larval stages, or through compe- tition for zooplankton prey is examined.
