Full Title

Polycystine Radiolarians from the water column and the surface sediments of the World Ocean


This data set includes information on the distribution of Polycystine Radiolaria, planktonic Foraminifera, Tintinnina, Pteropoda Euthecosomata and Chaetognatha recovered in plankton samples, sediment trap samples and surface sediment samples collected in the Atlantic, Pacific and Southern Oceans. Samples have been retrieved with plankton nets, suction pumps, sediment traps and sediment corers, processed for analysis and their zooplanktonic specific makeups identified.
