A 5-year study of the influence of the northeast and southwest monsoons on copepod assemblages in the boundary coastal waters between the East China Sea and the Taiwan Strait
Danshuei River in the northwestern tip of Taiwan discharges into the boundary coastal waters between the East China Sea and the Taiwan Strait. We conducted a 5-year study between October 1998 and
TAXONOMIC COMPOSITION AND SEASONAL DISTRIBUTION OF COPEPOD ASSEMBLAGES FROM WATERS ADJACENT TO NUCLEAR POWER PLANT I AND II IN NORTHERN TAIWAN
TLDR
Temora turbinata, Calanus sinicus, Canthocalanus pauper, Undinula vulgaris and Paracalanus aculeatus were the five dominant species, comprising 81% of the total copepod abundance from sampling stations of NPP I and II during the monitoring period between November 2000 and December 2003.
Hydroids (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) from marine environments in Taiwan
TLDR
This study provides the first taxonomic account of the hydroid fauna inhabiting the eastern Taiwan Strait region and species composition and abundances varied considerably from one environment to another and especially between DRE and NWB.
Symbolic Analysis of Plankton Swimming Trajectories: Case Study of Strobilidium sp. (Protista) Helical Walking under Various Food Conditions
TLDR
This study found that helical swimming patterns first increased with food concentration then decreased with a corresponding increase in the numbers of breaks, and used these results to simulate a ciliate’s trajectories using a symbolic dynamic model to generate a sequence series.
Dietary effects on egg production, egg‐hatching rate and female life span of the tropical calanoid copepod Acartia bilobata
TLDR
The results confirm that A. bilobata, a tropical brackish-water copepod species, develops rapidly at 28°C and can produce a large number of eggs; therefore, it has considerable potential for larvae culture.
Behavioral interactions of the copepod Temora turbinata with potential ciliate prey.
TLDR
These observations suggest that spinning and other evasive behaviors such as jumping are predator-deterrent strategies of ciliates, and incorporating species-specific interactions from behavioral studies will improve future food web models.
Diving as an Anti-Predator Behavior in Mosquito Pupae
TLDR
V videographic 2-dimensional observations in this study elucidate the pupal behavior of Culex pipiens quinquefasciatus in the presence and absence of the predatory fish Poecilia reticulata, showing significantly higher speeds and more-diverse escape responses inThe presence of the fish compared to the control.
