Abstract : The guide is the first of a series of practical taxonomic guides to zooplankton in preparation to meet the needs of people who are not taxonomists, but are involved with arctic fauna. The work is based upon results of research by investigators associated with this project and its precursors since 1952. Twenty-one species of adult, Central Arctic, non-benthic amphipods found in collections of plankton and under-ice fauna from Ice Stations T-3, ARLIS I, and ARLIS II are presented. Five species of euphausiids collected in the Central Arctic from T-3, ARLIS I, and ARLIS II, and in the Chukchi, East Siberian, and Laptev Seas by the USCGC Northwind and in the Barents and Kara Seas by the USCGC Eastwind are considered. Dichotomous keys, pertinent illustrations, useful references as well as notes on distribution, and morphology are provided. (Author)
