MetadataShow full item record
During the years 1963 and 1964 pandarid copepods were collected from 39 species of sharks. This material, in addition to collections of the United States National Museum, made possible a complete revision and redescription of the family Pandaridae. The copepods examined were from all major oceanic areas with the exception of polar regions. The author collected in the Gulf of Mexico and the Indian Ocean. Many collections were solicited and received from investigators in other geographic areas. Methods of collection and study are discussed. Complete redescriptions of poorly known species and descriptions of 5 new species are presented [TRUNCATED]
