"These [copepod species and abundance] data are the results of a survey to a specific area of the ocean where the studies were repeated at intervals and in this way the seasonal growth and cycle and production of the area were studied on a quantitative basis."  George Clarke, 1974 interview.    "Clark and his colleagues (Pierce and Bumpus) made eleven cruises between 1939 and 1941, towing the sampler, measuring water conditions and studying the zooplankton's growth and movements." (Woods Hole Currents, Volume 5 no. 1, 1996, p.9)
