Full description The Guide to the Marine Zooplankton of south eastern Australia, is an interactive tool providing a comprehensive, fully illustrated means of identification for the major zooplankton located in south eastern Australia. This new identification guide to local marine zooplankton is available online at: http://www.imas.utas.edu.au/zooplankton This is the result of collaboration between the Marine Research Laboratories and School of Zoology, University of Tasmania, and the Australian Antarctic Division. Please note that the full contents of the site will be available on (Free) CD-Rom

Lineage Samples The majority of samples were collected within coastal waters of eastern Tasmania, Australia. Care was taken to ensure that collection did not stress the zooplankton (distorting their structure/appearance). Samples were processed and images taken as soon as possible, to capture the natural appearance and colouration of the zooplankton. As zooplankton are often preserved prior to sorting and identification, we have also photographed and represented preserved specimens of some taxa for comparison. Where a preserved animal is photographed, this is stated in the caption. Additionally, as the preference for zooplankton sorting under a microscope varies, in some cases specimens are represented both on light and dark backgrounds.

Lineage All photos, unless otherwise specified, were taken by Anita Slotwinski at the Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute, Tasmania, Australia. Zooplankton were photographed with a Leica DC 300F camera mounted on a Leica MZ75 stereo microscope (0.77 to 6.3 x magnification) and a Leica 307-072.057/BZ:11 compound microscope (5 to 100 x magnification). The scale on photographs is presented in µm units. Please note that 1000 µm is equal to 1 mm. These photographs can be reproduced for further educational purposes, but only if the graphical content is not altered, and the photographer and this website are fully acknowledged. Permission must be sought if photographs are to be used for further publication purposes in books etc.
