Sažetak

This study provides the first comprehensive results on species composition, seasonal and horizontal distribution of the planktonic ostracod community in the open waters of the whole Adriatic Sea. Samples were collected during the “Andrija Mohorovičić” oceanographic expedition (1974-1976) in all four seasons at 35 stations located along eight latitudinal transects in the
northern, central and southern part of the Adriatic Sea. Fifteen ostracod species and two subspecies belonging to the family Halocyprididae were identified. The dominant species were
Archiconchoecia striata, Porroecia spinirostris and Proceroecia macroprocera. Additionally, Paraconchoecia oblonga
was recorded for the first time in the Adriatic Sea. The highest abundance and diversity of planktonic ostracods were found in the deep South Adriatic. Conversely, ostracods were scarce in the shallow
North Adriatic area. As the transitional zone between these two regions, the Central Adriatic was characterized by high ostracod diversity, but a short period of dominance in the zooplankton
assemblage. The horizontal distribution of planktonic ostracods in the Adriatic Sea could be linked to periodical ingressions of Eastern Mediterranean water masses and gyre currents, especially in
the Central and the South Adriatic.
