The Role of Appendicularians in Southern Ocean Carbon Flow and Trophodynamics
Entry ID: BROKE-West_Appendicularians

Abstract: Data acquisition:
Samples were collected using a 1.5 metre diameter Ring net (150 micron metre mesh) with a wide cod-end on the base (volume approximately 40 Litres). Vertical trawls were to 20 m (unless otherwise specified).
