CeDAMar: Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life

Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee, Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life (CeDAMar). The Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life examined the feeding patterns and distribution ranges of life in the abyssal plains and larger oceanic basins in the Southern Atlantic and Southern Pacific oceans, ranging from single-celled organisms to larger cephalopods. The project, led by scientists Pedro Martinez Arbizu and Craig Smith, catalogued more than 500 new species and examined the causes of change to abyssal life far removed from the ocean floor (in the form of climate change, pollution and mining efforts).

CenSeam: Global Census of Marine Life on Seamounts

Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Global Census of Marine Life on Seamounts (CenSeam). The Global Census of Marine Life on Seamounts project examined life on more than 100,000 seamounts that rose more than 1000 metres from the ocean floor, discovering new species and ecosystems similar to those on neighbouring slopes. The project, led by New Zealanders Malcolm Clark, Mireille Consalvey and Ashley Rowden, and American Karen Stocks, examined the perilous nature of these isolated communities when subject to changes such as damage caused by nearby fishing.

FMAP: Future of Marine Animal Populations

Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee Future of Marine Animal Populations (FMAP). The Future of Marine Animal Populations project analyzed fishing data and scientific surveys to determine changes in diversity and distribution of marine life. The project, headed by Canadian scientists Ian Jonsen, Heike Lotze, and Boris Worm (and previously by Ransom Myers), identified hot spots of diversity drawn from the Census of Marine Life database and changes in water temperature as one of the most integral determinants in the shaping of marine diversity patterns, while confirming that marine conservation helps to correct the rapid population declines associated with over-exploitation of marine stocks.
