Quantity 25 of this authoritative overview sequence maintains the excessive general set by way of the editors long ago. Marine biologists in every single place have come to worth and luxuriate in the big variety of thought-provoking papers written via invited experts.In this quantity are stories of 4 animal teams which span the full diversity of the marine nutrition chain. The position of parasites in ecology is a becoming curiosity and the parasites of zooplankton are defined intimately for the 1st time. elements of thegastropods, cephalopods and fish existence also are tested intimately.

We will detail some of these methodological matters first, since Christiansen’s (1968) work is not readily available. 1. Methodology Christiansen (1 968) determined concentrations of NH, colorometrically, standardizing to a salinity of 25%,. It is important to realize that, unlike for respiration experiments, food conditions during the experiment are of crucial importance. It is expected that a copepod that is feeding or has a gut full of food would excrete a t a higher rate than a copepod that was not fed and had an empty gut, both because of increased metabolic production of waste products and because the methods used to measure excretion may include the leaching of unassimilated nutrients from faeces.

Some authors have attempted to discern large-scale patterns in this seasonality. Pavshtiks and Timokhina (1972) summarized the annual cycle of Pseudocalanus in the Norwegian Sea, showing that the summer peak of abundance occurs in late June in Atlantic waters, mid-July in mixed waters, and late July in the East Icelandic Current. Colebrook (1969) has systematized data from surveys with the Continuous Plankton Recorder by using the centre of gravity on the time axis of the area included under seasonal curves of abundance.

Abundance 1. General abundance Pseudocalanus is not only widespread in northern seas, but is often said to be the most abundant form in many surveys of these waters. Perhaps the most impressive testimony to its numerical importance is from the long-term surveys with the Continuous Plankton Recorder around the British Isles (Fig. 3). Along with Calanus jnmarchicus (including C . helgolandicus, no doubt), Pseudocalanus (with a small admixture of Paracalanus) is found in virtually all the sampled areas.
