Lipids of gelatinous antarctic zooplankton: Cnidaria and Ctenophora

  title={Lipids of gelatinous antarctic zooplankton: Cnidaria and Ctenophora},
  author={Matthew M. Nelson and Charles F. Phleger and Ben D. Mooney and Peter David Nichols},
Antarctic gelatinous zooplankton, including Cnidaria (Calycopsis borchgrevinki, Diphyes antarctica, Stygiomedusa gigantea, Atolla wyvillei, Dimophyes arctica) and Ctenophora (Beroe cucumis, B. forskalii, Pleurobrachia pileus, Bolinopsis infundibulum) were collected near Elephant Island, South Shetland Islands, during January and February 1997 and 1998. Total lipid was low in all zooplankton (0.1–5 mg g−1 wet mass) and included primarily polar lipids (59–96% of total lipid). Triacylglycerols… CONTINUE READING
