Proceedings of the "Joint ICES/CIESM Workshop to Compare Zooplankton Ecology and Methodologies between the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic (WKZEM)"
In October 2008, scientists from the ICES Working Group of Zooplankton Ecology (WGZE) and the Mediterranean Science Commission (CIESM) held a workshop in Crete, Greece, to compare the zooplankton ecology of the Mediterranean with that of the North Atlantic. The idea to hold such a workshop – the Joint ICES/CIESM Workshop to Compare Zooplankton Ecology and Methodologies between the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic (WKZEM) – was originally proposed at the 2005 meeting of WGZE in Lisbon. It was felt that such a workshop was important in addressing and discussing issues of common interest and, for comparative purposes, to explore similarities and differences between the two ecosystems. Thus, the objectives of the workshop were to provide a forum in which scientists would present and discuss the results of ongoing research projects in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean, focusing on the structure and functioning of the regional ecosystems, emphasizing the comparative aspects.
