1995) have been used to explore the systematics of Calanus, as of other organisms. This approach has confirmed the reality of the relationship Calanus finmarchicus + glacialis + marshallae and also of the more genetically diverse C. helgolandicus group, though genetic information on C. orientalis was lacking. Further, the same technique distinguishes between populations of Calanus finmarchicus from different regions of the North Atlantic: fifteen samples of C. finmarchicus were thus grouped into four populations, one each in the Norwegian Sea, in the Gulf of Maine, on Georges Bank, and in the Gulf of St.

Although only a small part of the total effort of oceanography has ever been devoted to biogeography, even as late as the 1960s strong teams, expressly devoted to this task, A 19 20 Chapter 2: Biogeographic Partition of the Ocean were being recruited at some major oceanographic institutions. But despite all the effort expended, even now—150 years after the Challenger voyage—the total number of species in each major group of pelagic organisms is not even approximately agreed upon and we have descriptions of the seasonal distribution of no more than a very small proportion of them.

This technique, supported by statistical techniques for analyzing relationships between clades, results in neighborjoining or maximum-parsimony trees and other presentations that give taxonomists a new ability to quantify relationships between populations. This school cleaves to a very restrictive species concept, suggesting that “the smallest diagnosable cluster of individual organisms within which there is a parental pattern of ancestry and descent” represents a “phylogenetic species” (Cracraft, 1983).
