MAR-ECO Special Issues

MAR-ECO thematic issues of "Deep Sea Research II" and "Marine Biology Research" will be published in early 2008. Titles in the two issues are listed below. The manuscripts can be downloaded by project participants from the "Shared folder" on the MAR-ECO FTP server. For information on the access to the FTP server, please contact the PIs of the MAR-ECO component projects, or the MAR-ECO secretariat
