Published through the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Antarctic learn Series.

The distribution of Siphonophora of the Antarctic, Subantarctic, and adjoining areas of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans is defined. Specimens for this examine have been got throughout the usa Antarctic study software from USNS Eltanin cruises 3-5, 8-23, 25-28, 35, and 38 in the course of spring, summer time, fall, and iciness. Samples have been accrued from 1962 to 1969, utilizing open-closing and nonclosing plankton nets. info is compiled on horizontal distributions of siphonophores within the South Atlantic Ocean west of 0°. Illustrations of the species, and maps of distribution on the 3 bathymetric degrees, also are incorporated. moreover, info on Eltanin cruise 30 are awarded, protecting mostly the Pacific tropical quarter in the course of the summer season, with a few stations under the equator (austral winter). Vertical distributions of every species are mentioned for the 3 bathymetric zones: epipelagic (200-0 m), mesopelagic (1000-200 m), and bathypelagic (below one thousand m). lifestyles phases and seasonal differences also are thought of. 80 species of Siphonophora have been pointed out in those collections. between those, and defined in different places, have been 5 new species: Lensia eltanin, L. eugenioi, L. landrumae, Heteropyramis alcala, and Thalassophyes ferrarii. The eudoxid phases of L. lelouveteau and L. reticulata have been additionally chanced on. moreover, the subsequent infrequent Siphonophora species have been gathered: Halistemma cupulifera, Desmophyes annectens, Lilyopsis rosea, Eudoxia macra, Lensia achilles, L. baryi, L. exeter, L. grimaldii, L. hostile, Nectocarmen antonioi, and Clausophyes galeata. the most typical species of the Antarctic?]Subantarctic sector in the course of the 4 seasons used to be Dimophyes arctica. The eudoxid levels of Chelophyes appendiculata, Diphyes dispar, Diphyopsis mitra, Clausophyes ovata, and Heteropyramis maculata have been plentiful.
