Antarctic Krill

The aims of this blog are to give an insight into the life history and population dynamics of the Antarctic krill Euphausia superba Dana, 1850, and to stress its significance within both the Antarctic marine and terrestrial ecosystems. I also look at the effects of both environmental and anthropogenic factors on the population structure of E. superba, and how this consequently affects this keystone species. I also hope to project an understanding of how this impacts upon associated trophic levels within the overall Antarctic food web.
