Population Connectivity in Aquatic Ecosystems III Posters

Session ID#: 84576

Session Description:
Geographical distribution of aquatic organisms is determined by numerous biotic and abiotic factors. Advanced tools and methods (e.g., biophysical model, tracking larvae, tank experiment on larval traits) developed last decades allow us to further understand connectivity of subpopulations. This session will integrate new studies and findings on population connectivity and related processes (e.g., transport, dispersion, recruitment, settlement, competition) of aquatic organisms (e.g., invertebrates, fish, algae, mangrove, holoplankton including bacteria and viruses) in any aquatic habitats (open ocean, deep sea, coastal zone, estuary, river, etc.) across a range of spatial and temporal scales. Studies contributing to understand basic mechanisms of aquatic transport and connectivity are expected, but we also solicit studies dealing with temporal and spatial population/community dynamics due to natural/anthropogenic disturbances. Interdisciplinary study using genetic population data, laboratory experiment, modeling (numerical, statistical, conceptual), in-situ observations, remote sensing as well as innovative approaches are encouraged.
