Abstract Report of meeting convened to discuss ways of reducing uncertainties and errors in use of data for models on Antarctic marine ecosystem with particular reference to predator-prey relationships. Includes data from published and unpublished sources, and examines nature of input data such as abundance and trend estimates, foraging scales and seasonal diet in relation to methodology, broad levels of uncertainty, time series and spatial extent. Identifies and prioritizes gaps in knowledge, and types of analysis and field research programs needed to reduce important uncertainties in ecosystem models.
