Eco-DAS VIII Symposium Proceedings

Eco-DAS 8The Ecological Dissertations in the Aquatic Sciences (Eco-DAS) symposia bring together 35-40 recent PhD recipients for one week in alternate years. Eco-DAS is sponsored by the Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education (C-MORE), the University of Hawai`i School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) and its Department of Oceanography, and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO). The Proceedings includes nine highly interdisciplinary, collaborative chapters totaling 165 pages. All chapters are freely available for download. Funding was provided by the U.S. National Science Foundation.
