Figure S1 Annual and latitudinal distribution of 27224 samples from the Northwest Atlantic continental shelf (depths ≤ 200 m below 48&thinspace;°N; depths ≤ 350 m above 47°N).
Figure S2 Examples of mean species accumulation curves at three latitudes (35&thinspace;°N: triangles; 45&thinspace;°N: squares; 53&thinspace;°N: circles) during four representative years (1973, 1983, 1993, 2003).
Figure S3 Comparisons of LDG slopes between years with opposite NAO anomaly signs based on observed species diversity and three alternate diversity estimators.
Figure S4 Comparisons of primary production during years with +NAO anomalies vs. years with –NAO anomalies.
Figure S5 Negative correlation (r = -0.55) between annual winter NAO anomalies and the slopes of the annual linear regressions of average bottom water temperature per degree latitude based on the survey samples.
Figure S6 Positive correlation (r = 0.59) between the slopes of the annual linear regressions of average bottom water temperature per degree latitude based on the survey samples and the slopes of the annual LDGs.
Figure S7 Variance conserving plot of the NAO variability divided into 64 y bands for the period 1895-2005 with start times separated by 10 years except for the last block which has a 7 year separation.
Table S1 List of 426 species within 135 families collected in the 27224 samples.
