The biodiversity of zooplankton communities of the west arctic seas

The biodiversity of zooplankton communities of the west arctic seas Based on the data from ten cruises that were carried out in 2001–2009, the structure of zooplankton communities was assessed in the Western Arctic seas using the estimated biodiversity indices. The greatest number of taxa was revealed in the south, southeast, and north of the Barents Sea. The average number of taxa in the sample was at a maximum off the coast of the Svalbard Archipelago. The greatest value of the Shannon index was registered within the Murmansk coastal water mass (Barents Sea) and Svalbard Archipelago. The median values of the evenness of the abundance of fauna were 0.5–0.6. A trend to a reduction of the biodiversity parameters of zooplankton communities with increasing square of water area water area was found. An inverse correlation between the Shannon and evenness indices for the total zooplankton abundance was revealed. Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
