Parasitism , climate oscillations and the structure of natural communities

  title={Parasitism , climate oscillations and the structure of natural communities},
  author={Nam Seo Kim and Mouritsen and Robert Poulin},
Recently, Ottersen et al. (2001) reviewed the ecological impacts of the North Atlantic climate oscillation (NAO). The NAO is responsible for interannual and decadal fluctuations in winter temperatures, precipitation, wind conditions as well as distribution and fluxes of currents on both sides of the North Atlantic Ocean (Hurrell and van Loon 1997). A highly positive NAO index (measured as the deviance from the average sea level pressure difference between the Azores and Iceland) is associated… CONTINUE READING
