Marine Zooplankton Grouped by Sample

<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 in an entire sample (abundance and biomass of all species added together). An additional dataset which includes abundance and biomass to a fine taxonomic resolution including life history stages 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>
