    Abstract

    A simple generalised conceptual life history model for Antarctic krill is developed based on observations and data from the literature. The model attempts to take into account the observed relationships between Antarctic krill and its biotic and abiotic environment. Krill life history is thus viewed as an evolved product of interactions between the species and its environment. In particular, the model focuses on the different forces that act on the larval and adult stages.
