Abyssal community analysis from replicate box cores in the central North Pacific, supplement to: Hessler, Robert R; Jumars, Peter A (1974): Abyssal community analysis from replicate cores in the central North Pacific. Deep Sea Research and Oceanographic Abstracts, 21(3), 185-209

Robert R Hessler & Peter A Jumars
A 0.25 m**2 United States Naval Electronics Laboratory box corer was used to take replicate samples from an oligotrophic bottom under the North Pacific Central Water Mass (~28°N, 155°W). The bottom is a red clay with manganese nodules at a depth of 5500-5800 m.Macrofaunal density ranges from 84 to 160 individuals per m**2 and is therefore much the same as in Northwest Atlantic Gyre waters. Of the macrofaunal taxa, polychaetes dominate (55 %), followed by...
