Report on the Status and Trends of Southern Ocean Zooplankton
based on the SCAR Southern Ocean Continuous Plankton Recorder (SO-CPR) Survey
edited by Kunio T. Takahashi and Graham W. Hosie
This report has collated the current knowledge of the status of zooplankton, e.g. what species are known, community structure, biogeography, based on the analysis of the SO-CPR dataset, and 69 publications in peer-reviewed research papers, chapters, atlases, and reviews, bringing the information together and highlighting achievements over nearly 30 years. The report also includes some new analyses identifying trends (seasonal or long-term) in relation to changes in abundance, shifts in distribution, and community composition. It is a product of the SCAR Expert Group on CPR Research.
