Polychaete annelids from 48 benthic samples containing over
2000 specimens were identified. Samples were taken with either an
anchor dredge or an anchor-box dredge from a 15 station transect
(44° 39. 1'N) that ranges from 800 to 2900 meters in depth. Sediment
subsamples were collected and analyzed for organic carbon...
A multidisciplinary western Beaufort Sea Ecological Cruise
(WEBSEC) was conducted from August 15 to September 20, 1971.
During the cruise, one hundred ninety-nine 0.1 m² Smith-McIntyre
grabs samples were taken at forty stations located on the continental
shelf and slope of the western Beaufort Sea. The Gammaridean
Amphipoda and Cumacea...
Samples of benthic organisms off the coast of Oregon, taken
from depths varying from 50 to 2900 meters, have been analyzed in
terms of diversity at a given station, and similarity and ecological
distance to other stations. Estimates of epifauna abundance were
also made. In the analysis an important distinction...
During eleven cruises conducted off the Oregon continental
slope from April 1973 to March 1975, approximately 1600 specimens
of the majid crab Chionoecetes tanneri Rathbun were collected.
A time sequence of size frequency histograms and bivariate plots of
allometric measurements were used to determine size classes,
population structure, growth and...
Eleven cruises were conducted on the Oregon continental slope
from April 1973 to March 1975 to assess the biology and ecology of
the Tanner crab, Chionoecetes tanneri Rathbun. Bathymetric and seasonal
analysis of the distribution of adult Tanner crabs west of Coos
Bay, Oregon, revealed no segregation of sexes or...
The shallow, wave-swept sea floor off the central Oregon coast
is used by 0-age flatfishes as a nursery ground. This dissertation
is based on a series of projects designed to: 1) identify the dominant
meiobenthic nematodes present in a coastal nursery area; 2)
describe the important temporal and spatial scales...
A study was undertaken in Yaquina Bay, Oregon during the
summer of 1964 to determine the distribution and the factors affecting
the distribution of the polychaete worm, Nephtys caecoides,
Hartman, 1938, in the estuary.
This organism has a continuous distribution from offshore to
a point approximately eight kilometers into the...
