Bio-Physical Models of Oceanic Population Dynamics was the central theme of the 1994 summer program in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFD) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. This unusual topic brought together mathematical population biologists and geophysical fluid dynamicists and provided a new synthesis of ideas and methods for coupling these two broad and diverse fields. Lectures and seminars given by staff and visitors addressed the nature of physical controls on free-drafting or active swimming organisms in the oceans, the biological responses of marine populations to their physical environment and their own internal states, and the dynamics of coupled biophysical processes on marine populations. This volume includes write-ups of the principal lectures, abstracts of some seminars, and the reports of the fellows' research projects.

Hu, Qiao; Davis, Cabell S.; Petrik, Colleen M. (Inter-Research, 2008-05-22)Complex 3D biological-physical models are becoming widely used in marine and freshwater ecology. These models are highly valued synthesizing tools because they provide insights into complex dynamics that are difficult to ...
Dynamic energy budgets and bioaccumulation : a model for marine mammals and marine mammal populations Klanjscek, Tin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-06)Energy intake of individuals affects growth of organisms and, therefore, populations. Persistent lipophilic toxicants acquired with the energy can bioaccumulate and harm individuals. Marine mammals are particularly ...
