Unformatted text preview: species and the ecological factors that helped to shape them. Our current research projects include: (1) determination of metabolic rates, enzymic activities and compositional attributes of Antarctic zooplankton and micronekton as a function of season, depth of occurrence, and relationship to the Antarctic pack ice; (2) in-situ measurement of metabolism in gelatinous zooplankton using the Sea Link submersible: (3) the role of air-breathing in the early life history of tarpon; (4) energy utilization in larval fish; and (5) adaptation to salinity and cold temperature in Arctic intertidal crustacea....
