One: Lake and Near-Shore Marine Studies.- The ecology of photosynthetic bacteria in Burton Lake, Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Photosynthetic bacteria in meromictic lakes and stratified fjords of the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Sulfate reduction rates and some aspects of the limnology of four lakes and a fjord in the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Preliminary observations on psychrotrophic and psychrophilic, heterotrophic bacteria from antarctic water samples.- Pigment and lipid compositions of algal and bacterial communities in Ace Lake, Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Annual cycle of phytoplankton in Ace Lake, an ice-covered, saline meromictic lake.- Annual primary productivity of an antarctic continental lake: Phytoplankton and benthic algal mat production strategies.- Comments on the antarctic Rotifera.- Iodine distribution in an antarctic saline lake.- Trace element distributions in some saline lakes of the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- The annual cycle of heat content and mechanical stability of hypersaline Deep Lake, Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- The inshore marine ecosystem off the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Animal associations with the dominant species of shallow water macrophytes along the coastline of the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Temporal distribution and brooding behaviour of selected benthic species from the shallow marine waters off the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- The inshore marine fishes of the Vestfold Hills region, Antarctica.- A device for remote sampling of benthic algae under ice.- A device for reaming holes in ice.- Two: Terrestrial Studies.- Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems: The Vestfold Hills in context.- Plants and landscape in the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- A survey of the terrestrial Tardigrada of the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Cuticle structure and habitat in the Nanorchestidae (Acari: Prostigmata).- Foraminiferida from Neogene sediments, Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Changing distribution of late Quaternary terrestrial lacustrine and littoral environments in the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica.- Three: Bird and Seal Studies.- Birds of Prydz Bay, Antarctica: Distribution and abundance.- The breeding season diet of Adelie penguins at the Vestfold Hills, East Antarctica.- Predicting the swimming and diving behaviour of penguins from muscle biochemistry.- Studies of viruses in penguins in the Vestfold Hills.- Marking and monitoring studies of the Kerguelen stock of southern elephant seals Mirounga leonina and their bearing on biological research in the Vestfold Hills.- Variations in underwater vocalizations of Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddelli) at the Vestfold Hills, Antarctica as a measure of breeding population discreteness.
