This data set includes the results of 71 plankton samples off the southern and southwestern coast of Brazil from 3 oceanographic cruises – FINEP I, III and IV (respectively Nov/Dec 1975, May 1976 and Spt/Oct 1976). A total of 33 siphonophore species were identified.
At this juncture, this dataset is complete. Data have been entered in Excel spreadsheets from field worksheets (colony census forms) and then imported into a customised database. As no evidence to the contrary has been established, it is considered that this dataset is logically consistent.
Data are in a customized database on a Vax. See investigator for details.
