N e w insights into the colonization of the deep sea: systematics and zoogeography of the Munnldae and the Pleurogoniidae comb. nov. (Isopoda: Janiroidea). J. nat. Hist., 14(2): 215-236.

Detailed examination of the systematics of asellote isopods (Munnidae) revealed two family-rank taxa; these are redefined as the Munnidae (cosmopolitan, shallow-water types with a few broad-depth range deep sea species) and the Pleurogoniidae (Southern Hemisphere, cold, stenotopic types with many deep sea representatives; Pleurogonium is its northern genus 'likely to be the emergent representative of the pleurogoniid diversification in the deep sea'). Striking zoogeographic differences of the two new groupings are presented. Includes drawings and ca. 75 references. Scripps Institution of Oceanography, A-002, La Jolla, Calif. 92093, U.S.A.

The offshore distribution of the four life stages of A. clausi is governed by the magnitude and intermittency of wind-driven offshore transport, duration of each life stage, and mortality. 'The relaxation phase of intermittent upwelling carries A. clausi back towards shore, reducing cross-shelf transport.' This implies that zooplankton may be washed out during periods of prolonged upwelling caused by steady winds (e.g., off Northwest Africa). High mortality of A. clausi appears to occur at all stages.

This international conference covered all aspects of echinoderm biology--physiology, diversity, morphology, biochemistry, adaptation, distribution, evolution, ecology and paleoecology, taxonomy, reproduction, nutrition, histology, and culture---describing work in the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas, Gulf of Gascogne, Juan Fernandez and Solitary islands, Galway Bay, Brazil, Yugoslavia, Western Australia and western North America. Representatives of Echinoidea, Crinoidea, Holothuroidea, Asteroidea and Ophiuroidea were considered. Several papers are in French. (izs)

Growth at 4°C with a deficiency of nitrate, phosphate and bicarbonate slowed algal growth rates and increased tolerance to freezing in liquid nitrogen. Resistance to freezing could be due to changes in lipid saturation or to membrane augmentation. Israel Oceanographic & Limnological Research, Tel-Shikona, P.O.B. 8030, Haifa, Israel.
