Analysis of the 155 radiolarian taxa recorded in 48 plankton samples collected by means of 0-100 m tows between January and November 1972 in the California Current region revealed three faunal zones. The northernmost of these was dominated by Subarctic-transitional species; the central, which was comprised of three closely related subgroups, by intermediate-transitional taxa; and the southernmost by warm-transitional radiolarians. Of the taxa present in >5 samples, 47 - distributed among 12 species groups - plus 7 isolated species, showed significantly (p
