Abstract : 'Taxonomic guide to Arctic Zooplankton (III)' is the third in a series of practical taxonomic guides to zooplankton and is a preparation to meet the needs of people who are not taxonomists but, who are involved with arctic fauna, primarily of the Arctic Basin. Five species of chaetognaths, two of pteropods and the only species of decapod collected in the Arctic Basin are discussed in this report. Dichotomous keys, pertinent illustrations, useful references as well as notes on distribution and morphology are provided. (Author)
