Eco-DAS X 2012

The following participated in Eco-DAS X in October 2012. Each contributed a proposed chapter outline, in some cases with another participant. The proposed 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.
