Invitation to abstract submission : 2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting, 21-26 February 2016, New Orleans

David Hutchins, Philip Boyd, Ulf Riebesell, and Jean-Pierre Gattuso would like to invite the ocean global change research community to submit an abstract to their session at the 2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting, 21-26 February 2016, New Orleans. The session (abstract below) will focus on the effects of multiple environmental change drivers, including ocean acidification, on marine organisms at all trophic levels, including research employing experiments, modeling, and observations. The abstract deadline is coming up soon on September 23rd (

They are aiming to see the best new research in this fast-moving field presented at this session and look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!

Assessing the cumulative effects of complex ocean change on marine biota

Oceanic conditions are changing at an unprecedented rate due to anthropogenically-driven changes. Life in the ocean will increasingly have to contend with a complex matrix of concurrent shifts in properties that set their physiology and control their life histories. This matrix of change will have a combined influence on marine biota, due to both the individual effects of altered properties such as warming, but also due to the interactions between these properties. A further challenge to studying the cumulative effects of anthropogenic change will be the identification of the interactions of local, regional and global scales of such change. We invite abstracts to this session from studies which highlight how this multiplicity of factors can be addressed and will alter organismal physiology, biogeochemical cycles and/or food-webs. Theoretical, experimental and modelling approaches are welcome.
