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 presented in 1997. It corresponds to the Sixteenth Meetings of the CCAMLR Commission and Scientific Committee and is published only in English.
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(iii) scientific papers not intended for publication, which are listed as ‘unpublished’; and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-XII/BG/11 (background document number 11 submitted at the Twelfth Meeting of the Scientific Committee); or WG-EMM-96/8 (document number 8 submitted at the 1996 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Unpublished papers must not be cited without written permission of the author(s).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.
