The Western English Channel—an inconstant ecosystem?

A. J. Southward

Marine Biological Association, Plymouth, Devon PL1 2PB, UK

Changes in the chemistry and biology of the English Channel waters off Plymouth in the 1930s were a talking point for marine scientists 30 and 40 yr ago. The reversal of many of the changes, beginning in 1965 and continuing to 1979, may cause equal controversy about the stability of the ecosystem and the factors causing its fluctuation
