Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 11.

This is the third of the eleven volumes of the Research Series thus far published which is devoted to the Biology of the Antarctic Seas. It comprises 12 original papers which, in subject matter, range from an investigation of the life processes of the microalgae of sea-ice (John S. Bunt) and the productivity of the sea (S. Z. El-Sayed) to the physiologic behavior and reactions to diving of the Weddell seal (G. L. Kooyman).
