Zooplankton of the South Atlantic Ocean is a unique taxonomic reference work covering almost 2,600 plankton species occurring in the South Atlantic Ocean.
These are classified under 1,300 higher taxa, such as the Medusae, Siphonophorae, Ctenophora, Chaetognatha, planktonic Tunicata and Polychaeta, pelagic Gastropoda and Cephalopoda, and a vast group of planktonic Crustacea. Fifteen of the 28 higher-level groups treated have new interactive, illustrated keys to family, genus or species level. Also, four different Identifylt keys are provided on this DVD-ROM: one for the Foraminifera, one for the Siphonophorae, and two for the Hydromedusae.
IdentifyIt is a multiple-entry identification key that allows you to define multiple characters for a specimen and then calculates which species is the closest match. For most groups, geographical and vertical distribution patterns are given, from equatorial waters to the Antarctic circumpolar belt. General introductory information on morphology, reproduction, development, feeding, production rates, etc. is included, and the 3345 literature references provided will help to guide the user towards the relevant papers on each subject. A section on methodology is part of this information system as well. Common biological, morphological and geographical terms are captured in an illustrated glossary defining 1375 terms. All text is ‘hyperlinked’, enabling quick navigation through the massive amount of information.
This authoritative work, compiled and edited by Prof. Demetrio Boltovskoy, provides contributions from 41 oceanographers and marine biologists. It is a remarkable and fundamental source of information for marine biologists, oceanographers, environmentalists and students and deserves to be widely available in both personal and scientific libraries.
