    Additional Records of Folliculinids (Protozoa) in Hawaii
    (University of Hawai'i Press, 1962-10) Matthews, Donald C.
    Thus far, only three species of folliculinids have been recorded for Hawaii: Andrews (1944) assigned folliculinids from Kaena Point to Parafolliculina annulata [reassigned by Hadzi (1951) to Halofolliculina annulata (Andrews)]; and Matthews (1953) assigned folliculinids from Waimanalo Creek to Metafolliculina andrewsi Hadzi and those from the Hawaii Marine Laboratory to Lagotia simplex Dons.

    Variable Factors Affecting the Apparent Range and Estimated Concentration of Euphausiids in the North Pacific
    (University of Hawai'i Press, 1962-10) Brinton, Edward
    The quantitative and qualitative contents of a zooplankton sample are influenced by two kinds of variables: (1) natural variables such as temperature of the water, currents, latitudinal and seasonal variations in sunlight intensity, water transparency, amount of food or nutrients, oxygen content of the water, which may modify or maintain the horizontal and vertical distribution of species and condition their breeding and growth cycles; (2) artificial variables associated with (a) the method used to present the data, (b) the method used to take aliquots and count the plankton, and (c) the collecting method-type of net, depth of tow, hour of day of sampling.
