Marine Zooplankton Detailed Records

<p>This dataset contains zooplankton samples collected from Puget Sound and analyzed by the Keister lab at the University of Washington. For more information see the King County <a href="">marine zooplankton webpage. </a></p><p>This specific dataset summarizes zooplankton abundance and biomass data to the lowest practical taxonomic unit, and includes life history stage information (where available). An additional dataset summarizing total zooplankton abundance and biomass by sample is available <a href= "" >HERE . </a></p><p>For locator information, see the <a href="">WLRD Water Quality Collection Sites</a> dataset.</p><p>For corresponding water quality data matched by Profile ID see the <a href="">Water Quality</a> dataset.</p>
