Adult Body Mass and Annual Production/Biomass Relationships of Field Populations
We investigate specific production rates (per unit biomass) of populations using published data on the relation of annual production/mean biomass (P/B). Aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates betweenExpand

Cell volumes, maximal growth rates of unicellular algae and ciliates, and the role of ciliates in the marine pelagial1,2
A review of growth rates of diatoms and dinoflagellates in light-saturated, nutrient-replete cultures at 20°C confirms weak dependence on cell volume or mass. These maximal (intrinsic) rates are notExpand

Determining the carbon-to-chlorophyll ratio of natural phytoplankton
For field samples, regression analyses of plots of chemically determined particulate organic carbon on chlorophyll are often employed to estimate the algal carbon-to-chlorophyll ratio (F) in theExpand

Seasonality of phytoplankton chlorophyll in the central and northern Arabian sea
Abstract Marked seasonality of ship-observed chlorophyll concentrations in the upper layers of the central and northern parts of the Arabian Sea is established for three hydrographically definedExpand

On upwelling and bottom-trawling off the southwest coast of India
While starting an investigation on basic production off Cochin at the southwest coast of India, a section across the shelf with serial observations on temperature, salinity, and oxygen content wasExpand

Low seasonality of low concentrations of surface chlorophyll in the Subantarctic water ring: underwater irradiance, iron, or grazing?
Abstract In-situ surface chlorophyll concentrations (usually with phaeopigment) in the Pacific and Indian ocean sectors of the Subantarctic water ring (between the Subtropical Convergence and theExpand

Hydrography of the Arabian Sea Shelf of India and Pakistan and effects on demersal fishes
Abstract Time-series observations of temperature, salinity, and oxygen off Cochin between August 1958 and January 1960 are presented. Upwelling, which begins with the southwest monsoon, causes anExpand

Grazing, Temporal Changes of Phytoplankton Concentrations, and the Microbial Loop in the Open Sea
With the advent of maps of chlorophyll distribution in the world ocean (Feldman et al., 1989; Lewis, this volume), parochial questions can be asked on a global basis: (1) where, (2) when, and (3) whyExpand

Rates of phytoplankton cell division in the field and in iron enrichment experiments
Increases in chlorophyll with time for contained coastal plankton, expressed as daily division rates, are on average about as high as rates for nutrient-replete cultures at similar temperatures, whenExpand
