Identifying areas of high species diversity and abundance is important for under- standing ecological processes and conservation planning. These areas serve as foraging habitat or important breeding or settlement areas for multiple species, and are often termed 'hotspots'. Marine hotspots have distinct biophysical features that lead to their formation, persistence, and recurrence, and that make them important oases in oceanic seascapes. Building upon a session at the North Pacific Marine… Expand
