The depth distribution of meroplankton in the water column of Cape Hallett
Entry ID: K018_2003_2005_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Plankton was sampled at a single site (72° 18.412' S, 170° 11.290' E) off Seabee Hook, Edisto Inlet, Cape Hallett during the 04-05 season to determine if there is a different larval community at depths greater than 50 m of the water column. Two sampling periods were used, early season (19-23 November, 2004) and late season (1-5 December 2004) in randomised block sampling. Plankton was sampled at ... View entire text
