About Adam T. Greer
Biological and physical processes lead to zooplankton patch formation across a range of spatial scales. Through the use of plankton imaging systems, we can investigate boundaries in the ocean between water masses of differing physical properties (e.g., fronts, pycnoclines, thin layers, etc.) and how these physical features impact the distribution of larval fishes, their potential predators/prey, and overall ecosystem productivity. Imaging systems also provide good abundance estimates of gelatinous zooplankton, which are critical yet understudied links in the marine food web, potentially impacting the life cycles of many commercially important species.
