Proceedings of the Back Bay Ecological Symposium
Back Bay Ecological Symposium
Back Bay contains two distinct populations of zooplankton. One is a micro-zooplankton component composed primarily of ciliated protozoans, the other is a macrozooplankton group dominated by calanoid copepods, crustacean larvae, rotifers and polychaete larvae. Seasonal periods of abundance for these zooplankters are identified and discussed.
