I don't know the answer to that question, but both appear to be some
kind of alias for the MaskedArray class and not part of the API.

I think you should get the effect you want using masked_where
>>> import numpy.ma as ma
>>> masked_series = ma.masked_where((series.years>2000) & (series.years<2010), series)
There's some in progress documentation in the Numpy doc app at
hasn't yet made it's way to the reference manual
