The greatest diversity of species occurred between 55 and 60 deg. S, just north of the Antarctic Convergence. Maximum concentration was found at 70 to 72 deg. S, where #Corethron criophilum# was profoundly dominant. A predominantly sub-Antarctic assemblage between 52 and 64 deg. S was dominated by nine species not found in significant quantities elsewhere in the present series of samples only two of these extended in appreciable numbers into the Ross Sea. Six of the commonest species ranged from sub-Antarctic waters Southwards across the Antarctic Convergence, and two were not recorded north of the Ross Sea

The distribution of phytoplankton in the southern ocean and Ross Sea has been investigated from fifty-seven samples taken at roughly 30-mile intervals between southern New Zealand and McMurdo Sounds. The greatest diversity of species occurred between 55 and 60 deg. S, just north of the Antarctic Convergence. Maximum concentration was found at 70 to 72 deg. S, where #Corethron criophilum# was profoundly dominant. A predominantly sub-Antarctic assemblage between 52 and 64 deg.
