[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This data set includes information on the distribution of Polycystine
Radiolaria, planktonic Foraminifera, Tintinnina, Pteropoda Euthecosomata and
Chaetognatha recovered in plankton samples, sediment trap samples and surface
sediment samples collected in the Atlantic, Pacific and Southern Oceans.
Samples have been retrieved with plankton nets, suction pumps, sediment traps
and sediment corers, processed for analysis and their zooplanktonic specific
makeups identified.
