  • A preliminary study on Dodecaceria pacifica (Fewkes)

    Boone, Winston B. (University of California, BerkeleyBerkeley, CA, 1950)
    In various areas along the coast in the vicinity of Monterey there are many colonies of the Polychaete worm Dodecaceria pacifica. An attempt has been made to find out something of the distribution, size, structure and the flora and fauna associated with these colonies.
  • A survey of the plankton of Monterey Bay

    Boone, Winston B.; Gwilliam, G.F. (University of California, BerkeleyBerkeley, CA, 1950-07-28)
    The purpose of this paper is to add to the identification of planktonic forms found in Monterey Bay, and also to compare the composition and population fluctuation with findings of previous years.
  • A Comparison of the Range and Movements of Acmaea digitalis Eschscholtz, Acmaea scutum Eschscholtz, Acmaea limatula Carpenter and Lottia gigantea Sowerby

    Haderlie, Eugene C. (University of California, BerkeleyBerkeley, CA, 1947)
    Ten limpets (4 Acmaea digitalis , 4 Acmaea scutum, 1 Acmaea limatula, and 1 Lottia gigantea) were marked and their movements observed over a thirteen day period. Recordings of positions were made on a map, and the path of each was drawn on the map from day to day. Acmaea digitalis showed the greatest range, mostly in a vertical direction, and moved usually at night during high tide. Acmaea scutum showed a more limited range in a horizontal direction, and moved both day and night during high tide. Acmaea limatula had a horizontal range similar to A. scutum,, but exhibited no movement during the day time. Lottia gigantea had the most restricted range of any limpet studied, and moved only at night during high tide.This is a student paper done for a University of California Berkeley Zoology class. Since UCB didn't have its own marine lab at the time, it rented space at Hopkins Marine Station where this work was done. Gene Haderlie went on to earn his Ph.D. from Berkeley and later became a Professor at the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey. (PDF contains 23 pages)
  • The Biology of a High Isolated Tide Pool

    Haderlie, Eugene C. (University of California, BerkeleyBerkeley, CA, 1947)
    A small isolated tide pool was studied quite intensively over a period on one month. A oensus of all animals present was taken, and a population record kept daily for the month. Fluctuations in the numbers of individuals were noted, and reasons for these fluctuations sought.The behavior and feeding habits of the various animals werenoted, and an attempt was made to relate the animals to their environment.This is a student paper done for a University of California Berkeley Zoology class.

  • The littoral ascidians of Monterey Bay and vicinity

    Abbott, Donald P. (University of California, BerkeleyBerkeley, CA, 1947)
