List of Contributors. Turbulence, Phytoplankton Cell Size, and the Structure of Pelagic Food Webs, T. Kioboe. Autotrophic and Heterotrophic Picoplankton in the Baltic Sea, J. Kuparinen and H. Kuosa.

This volume features two papers on plankton, a vital component of the marine ecosystem and one that has featured often in this series in the past. Kiorboe takes a fresh look at water turbulence and its effect on food web structure and the size of individual plankton cells. Kuparinen and Kuosa describe the plankton populations of the Baltic Sea. Subramoniam looks at the morphology and use of spermatophores in crustacean reproduction. Finally, Horwood documents the status of and future prospects for the Bristol Channel Sole fishery. State-of-the-art reviews in marine biology. Particular focus on plankton, fisheries and crustacea.
