Abstract : 'Taxonomic guide to Arctic Zooplankton (IV)' is the fourth of a series of practical taxonomic guides to zooplankton prepared to meet the needs of people who are not taxonomists, but who are involved with Arctic fauna. This guide presents, in the form of illustrations and dichotomous keys, all species of calanoid copepods reported from the Central Arctic Ocean as well as a few undescribed species. Provided also are a discussion of basic copepod morphology and terminology, a key for the distinction of the orders of planktonic copepods, and some selected references on studies done on the species.
