Abstract : The compilation presents a detailed consideration of the different adult pelagic polychaetes found in the central Arctic Ocean. Emphasis has been placed on the familial level as information on the group is still inadequate to justify construction of generalized keys to species. Provided also are a discussion of basic polychaete morphology and terminology used in the guide, illustrations, dichotomous keys, and hints on methodology for handling preserved specimens. Selected references pertaining to polychaetes in general, as well as those concerning specific polychaetes in the guide, are also included. (Author Modified Abstract)
