Sessile organism accumulation in a nearshore water column during a one year period.
MetadataShow full item record
This report includes the photographic history so obtained and a partially annotated checklist of those major microscopic organisms found on the floats after ten months in situ. No attempt at complete analysis of the species comprising the community which accumulated on the floats was made. However, certain prominent molluscs and barnacles, which made up a large fraction of the total volume of organisms, were used as indicators of gross accumulation.
