Copepod Abundance and Measurements in Historical Zooplankton Samples [Smith, S.]


This data set contains an analysis of samples collected aboard the U.S.S. Burton Island in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas during 1950-1951. The data expand on the work previously done by M. Johnson (1956) as they contain estimates of abundance of various life history stages of large-bodied copepods and measurements of specimens from selected samples. For more information, see the readme file.
