2013

Climate change is predicted to have a range of impacts on Pacific Island ecosystems and the services they provide for current and future development. There are a number of characteristics that can make adaptation approaches that utilise the benefits of ecosystems a compelling and viable alternative to other adaptation approaches.

Latitudinal comparisons of equatorial Pacific zooplankton

Roman MR, Dam HG, Le Borgne R, and Zhang X ·
2002

Zooplankton biomass and rates of ingestion, egestion and production in the equatorial Pacific Ocean along 140degreesW and 180degrees exhibit maximum values in the High-Nutrient Low-Chlorophyll (HNLC) zone associated with equatorial upwelling (5degreesS-5degreesN) as compared to the more oligotrophic regions to the north and south.

Latitudinal Variations in Mesozooplankton Grazing and Metabolism in the Central Tropical Pacific During the Us Jgofs Eqpac Study

Zhang X, Dam HG, White JR, and Roman MR ·
1995

Pigment ingestion rates by three size classes of mesozooplankton (200-500 mu m, 500-1000 mu m and 1000-2000 mu m) within the euphotic zone were measured during the Survey 1 (February/March) and Survey 2 (August/September) cruises of the 1992 United States Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (U.S. JGOFS) in the central equatorial Pacific (EqPac).
