Eco-DAS IX 2010

The following individuals attended Eco-DAS IX in October 2010. Each contributed a proposed chapter outline, in some cases with another participant. These proposed chapter topics formed the basis for collaborative chapters in the symposium proceedings, an open-access, web-based book published by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO).
