Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to a special session on 
"*Ecological impacts of El Niño 2015-16*" at the forthcoming ASLO 2017 
Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii (26 Feb. - 3 Mar. 2017). 
Below is a brief description.We encourage researchers that studied 
impacts of the recent El Niño to consider contributing to the session.

The deadline for abstract submission is Midnight, Central Daylight Time 
USA / 05:00 Greenwich Mean Time, on Friday, 14 October 2016, at:



Mark Ohman and Sally Holbrook

*Session 059 - Ecological impacts of El Niño 2015-16*

El Niño of 2015-16 was among the strongest events on record in the 
equatorial Pacific and had impacts across diverse biomes ranging from 
tropical coral reefs to mid- and high-latitude plankton communities. 
This event was particularly notable because it developed on the heels of 
the anomalous warm Pacific conditions of the previous year. El Niño 
influences propagated directly via atmospheric teleconnections and 
changes in ocean temperature and circulation, and indirectly via altered 
winds, nutrient availability, changes in predator distributions, and 
other effects. We invite papers treating El Niño impacts in tropical, 
temperate, and high-latitude environments ranging from benthic to 
neritic and pelagic systems. Contributions are welcomed on different 
aspects of marine genetic, population, community, ecosystem, or 
biogeochemical responses to this ecological perturbation. The session 
aim is to bring together a diverse group of aquatic scientists to report 
their findings on the ecological effects of this historically strong El 
Niño, which may provide insight into future responses of marine 
ecosystems to such events.
