Abstract : This report reviews the activities of 27 marine biological field collectors between November 1959 and May 1969. The collections include the most extensive American collections of central arctic plankton, rather limited but significant arctic benthonic collections, important Northeast Greenland planktonic and benthonic collections, and the most complete and largest collection of cyamids. Special attention has been directed to occurrence of organisms in particular water masses and to relations with confluent seas' populations. For these studies on protozoans, jellyfishes and some crustaceans are significant. State of work on cyclical events, behavior, physiology, and biochemistry, and of affiliated studies on cetaceans and on arctic marine-influenced lakes is reported. (Author)
