Title:Some Bathyal Pacific Amphipoda Collected by the U.S.S. Albatross
Authors:Barnard, J.L.
Date Issued:Jul 1964

Abstract:Several bathyal Amphipoda from the U.S.S.
"Albatross" expeditions of 1888 onward
(Holmes, 1908; Shoemaker, 1925) remained to
be determined in the collections of the U.S.
National Museum, and the results of their study
are presented here. Increasing interest is being
shown in faunas on bottoms of 200-2000 m.
Although these depths comprise only 8.5% of
the world's sea-floor, they perhaps support the
remnants of the ancient abyssal fauna occupying
depths greater than 2000 m prior to the Tertiary
cooling of the seas (Madsen, 1961; Barnard,
1961, 1962; and their bibliographies).
