End-to-end Food Webs (disbanded)

The E2E WG has completed its mandate. The group is now disbanded.

What was the "E2E Food Webs " Working Group?

The cross-cutting End-to-end Food Webs (Material and Energy Flow) working group focused on the development of an implementation plan for end-to-end food web studies. The group was conducted jointly with GLOBEC, with co-chairs from each project. The plan was developed to guide studies of integrated marine food webs extending from viruses to whales, and the impacts of harvesting on end-to-end food webs and biogeochemical cycles. The implementation plan ensured a coordinated focus on biogeochemical processes, integrated food web and ecosystem modelling, functional biodiversity and impacts of global change (as they relate to marine food webs).

End-to-end food webs were defined as:

"

Food webs that incorporate interactions among organisms and between organisms and their physical and chemical environments.
