Vertical distribution, abundance and community structure of oncaeid copepods in the Oyashio region, western subarctic Pacific
- Environmental Science
Investigation of the vertical distribution, abundance and community structure of oncaeid copepods in the Oyashio region, western subarctic Pacific revealed that species composition in epipelagic and upper mesopelagic zones varied temporally due to the changes of hydrographic conditions, whereas those in lower mesopelsagic and bathypelagic zone were relatively stable, reflecting the constancy of deep environments.

The caudinid sea cucumbers of New Zealand (Echinodermata: Holothuroidea: Molpadida: Caudinidae).
Five species of Caudinidae occur in New Zealandwaters. Two new species are described: Paracaudina alta sp. nov.; Paracaudina reductia sp. nov. Two species reported previously are discussed:…
Phylogeny of Oweniidae (Polychaeta) based on morphological data and taxonomic revision of Australian fauna
Phylogenetic hypotheses confirmed the monophyly of Oweniidae and suggested sister-group relationships with Magelonidae, although weakly supported and recognised Myrioglobula as a junior synonym of Myriochele based on the presence of acicular chaetae and the shape of the head.

The similis-Subgroup within Triconia (Copepoda: Cyclopoida: Oncaeidae) from Korean Waters (East China Sea), Including a New Species
- Biology, Environmental Science
Two small oncaeid copepods were collected in June 2009 using a conical net of a fine mesh size from off the southern coast of Cheju I., Korea (Northwest Pacific) which is affected by the Tsushima Warm Current, and one species is newly recorded from Korean waters, and the other is new to science.
