Entry ID: K043_2006_2008_NZ_5

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The distribution, taxonomy, physiology and feeding habits of pelagic amphipods was investigated. Amphipods were collected by plankton tow, baited traps, coring (coring through sea ice) or hand collections (from tide cracks). Approximately 2000 individual amphipods were collected. About 75% of the amphipods collected were preserved in vials of absolute ethanol for DNA studies. The remaining 25% ... View entire text
