Geographical distribution of Pseudocalanus spp.
Species Pseudocalanus newmani - Distribution map 3issued from : I.A. McLaren, M.J. Tremblay, C.J. Corkett & J.C. Roff in Can. J. Fish. Aquat. Sci., 1989, 46. [p.571, Fig.10].
Annual cycle of Pseudocalanus newmani on Emerald Bank (43°30'N, 63°00'W), 1979-80.
Successive generations labelled Go, etc. For convenience, Nov. 1979 sample placed at end (after 1980). Upper panel: abundances as proportions of stages (AD: adults; males clear section of adult bar). Lower panel: size-frequencies of adult females as proportions.
The samples were obtained by vertical hauls from near bottom (usually 25 m) by Hensen-type nets (one of 0.250 mm mesh and the other of 0.064 mm mesh).

Species Pseudocalanus newmani - Distribution map 6Issued from : D.L. Aksnes & M.D. Ohman inLimnol. Oceanogr., 1996, 41 (7). [p.1468, Fig.4]. Comparisons of mortality estimates (per day) for Pseudocalanus newmani (from Dabob Bay) obtained by the vertical and horizontal approaches.

Nota: Mortality is commonly estimated from time series of abundances of the different stages of the species (horizontal live table approach) with the assumption that transport processes are of minor influence. The equations appropriate for analysis of stage distributions in samples at a single time (vertical life table approach) that, in certain circonstances, facilitate mortality estimation without requiring time series abundances. A primary assumption is that dayly recruitment to a particular stage should not be characterized by a strong upward or downward trend.
After comparisons of the two approaches, the conclusion is that the vertical approach may provide mortality estimates under conditions in which horizontal techniques are inappropriate. In contrast to estimates obtained with horizontal techniques, vertical estimates represent snapshot of the population.
