CCAMLR Scientific Abstracts provides a comprehensive record of all scientific papers presented for the consideration of the annual meetings of the CCAMLR Commission and Scientific Committee and of their subsidiary bodies.
This volume contains abstracts of scientific papers as presented and discussed at the 2008 meetings of the CCAMLR Scientific Committee and its working groups. It is published only in English.
Publication of an abstract does not imply in any way that the paper was reviewed by the Scientific Committee or its working groups, or was used in the work of CCAMLR.
There are four categories of papers:
(i) scientific papers published elsewhere, for which the full reference and published abstract are given;
(ii) scientific papers submitted for publication, i.e. in CCAMLR Science or elsewhere, which are listed as ‘submitted’ or ‘in press’ with details of the publisher, if known;
(iii) scientific papers not intended for publication, which are listed as ‘unpublished’; and
(iv) supplementary scientific papers (i.e. listing of data submitted, summary of analyses performed, etc.) not intended for publication, for which the title alone is listed.
All abstracts are listed in groups by respective CCAMLR bodies at meetings of which these papers were submitted. Each abstract is preceded with a unique CCAMLR document number, e.g. SC-CAMLR-XXVII/BG/11 (background document number 11 submitted at the Twenty-seventh Meeting of the Scientific Committee); or WG-EMM-08/8 (document number 8 submitted at the 2008 meeting of the Working Group on Ecosystem Monitoring and Management).
Unpublished papers must not be cited without written permission of the author(s). Addresses of principal authors are given for this purpose.
