ID Leaflets for Plankton provide practical taxonomic keys, relevant ecological information, and detailed references for the identification of major plankton species and groups in the ICES Area. They are written and peer-reviewed by experts in the field. The series is produced under the auspices of the ICES Working Group on Zooplankton Ecology (WGZE) and the current series editors are Antonina dos Santos and Lidia Yebra.
In 2019, the series relaunched after a publication hiatus of 18 years. The series will revisit and update key zooplankton groups described in older leaflets, and will be expanded, to encompass groups previously not covered by the series. Further, the leaflets now contain summaries and links to available molecular data for each species or group. Our collection of published leaflets can be browsed in the ICES library.
ID Leafltes for Plankton are normally produced by invitation. However, if you are interested in contributing, please contact the series editors or ICES editor.
