Description:

The influence of the Benguela upwelling system on Namibia's marine biodiversity.

Summary / Notes:

Namibia's marine environment falls within the Benguela system, an eastern boundary current upwelling system in the south eastern Atlantic Ocean. Conditions within much of this environment change continuously as a consequence of the upwelling of nutrient-rich water into the surface zone. In addition, irregular anomalies in temperature, oxygen concentration and salinity occur, particularly in shelf waters. These fluctuations, which are inherent in the functioning of the Benguela system, tend to favour the persistence of few, generalist species, while at the same time high productivity supports large abundances.
