Item Summary

Title: A New Species of Melita (Amphipoda:Gammaridae) from the Marshall Islands, Micronesia
Authors: Croker, Robert A.
Issue Date: Jan 1971
Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: Croker RA. 1971. A new species of Melita (amphipoda:gammaridae) from the Marshall Islands, Micronesia. Pac Sci 25(1): 100-108.
Abstract: During the summers of 1968 and 1969, the
author collected and studied amphipods from
intertidal and subtidal lagoon habitats of three
atolls (Eniwetok, Kwajalein, and Majuro) in
the Marshall Islands, Micronesia. Particular emphasis
was placed on collecting from calcareous
sands and gravels, since most workers to date
have reported on the more abundant epifaunal
species (Schellenberg, 1938; Barnard, 1965). In
addition, efforts were made to collect complete
series of life history stages, and to study morphological
variations, behavior, and general ecology
of the more abundant species.
