Project: The metabolic physiology of Arctic Calanus spp. – what limits production in these key Arctic copepod?

Supervisors: Daniel Mayor (NOC Southampton), David Pond (University of Stirling), Tom Anderson (NOC Southampton)

My project aims to find how the physiology of Calanus spp. is affected by changing phytoplankton community structure and abundance. I will be applying a stoichiometric model to observations of the physiology of Calanus spp. to ascertain whether production is limited by the quantity or quality of available food. This work forms part of the DIAPOD project, and includes data obtained on the JR17005 research cruise in the Fram Strait.
