The distribution of zooplankton in McMurdo Sound - interannual variation, spatial variation and depth stratification
Entry ID: K014_1990_1991_NZ_1

Abstract: Building on previous studies of zooplankton distribution and abundance, a programme was planned to i) augment the interannual variability off Scott Base, ii) assess variability in surface waters on both sides of McMurdo Sound and iii) acquire extra information on depth distribution in relation to fish feeding studies. Two types of sampling was conducted at 4 sites, integrated vertical net samples ... View entire text
