The Continuous Plankton Recorder survey is the largest marine biological time series in the world. Analysis of this spatially extensive long-term time series has revealed insights into community ecology and the influence of the environment on the plankton. However, the method of sampling by the CPR results in considerable physical damage to the specimens, which limits taxonomic resolution. To obtain further insights into plankton ecology new molecular genetic methods have been developed to work with formalin-fixed CPR samples. This talk will show how molecular methods can be applied as a simple diagnostic tool to identify taxa, may be used to extend the utility of the CPR to population genetic studies and can provide new insights into the impact of climate benthic-pelagic interactions.
