Measurements of distribution, swimming and feeding behaviour, diet analysis and morphometric measurements of Paramoera walkeri - a common subtidal gammarid amphipod
Entry ID: K014_1971_1972_NZ_2

Abstract: Paramoera walkeri is a common subtidal gammarid amphipod, occurring to depths slightly in excess of 15m. Work was completed over two seasons of sampling. In the first season, 4 samples were taken at fortnightly intervals, at depths of 3, 6 and 15m using an epibenthic sledge. Samples were counted to determine the comparative number of individuals at the various depths and to record variations over ... View entire text
