Interactions between Zooplankton and Crude Oil: Toxic Effects and Bioaccumulation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
We conducted ship-, shore- and laboratory-based crude oil exposure experiments to investigate (1) the effects of crude oil (Louisiana light sweet oil) on survival and bioaccumulation of polycyclicExpand

Escape behavior of planktonic copepods in response to hydrodynamic disturbances: high speed video analysis
Planktonic copepods exhibit rapid escape behavior in response to hydrodynamic distur- bances. Small disturbances of brief duration were produced by a piezoelectric transducer moving a small cylinder.Expand

Feeding, growth, and behavior of the thecate heterotrophic dinoflagellate Oblea rotunda
Laboratory experiments were performed to determine the growth and grazing capabilities of Oblea rotunda, a pallium-feeding dinoflagellate. Although Oblea can feed and grow on a wide range ofExpand

The role of hypersalinity in the persistence of the Texas ‘brown tide’ in the Laguna Madre
A brown tide bloom of the alga Aureoumbra lagunensis was present without interruption in the Laguna Madre of Texas from January 1990 through October 1997. This is the longest continual phytoplanktonExpand

Swimming pattern as an indicator of the roles of copepod sensory systems in the recognition of food
The roles of copepod sensory systems in the recognition of food were investigated using the “Bugwatcher”, a video-computer system designed to track and describe quantitatively the swimming patternsExpand

Behavioral adaptations of the cubozoan medusa Tripedalia cystophora for feeding on copepod (Dioithona oculata) swarms
Abstract. The cubozoan medusa Tripedalia cystophora preys on dense swarms of the copepod Dioithona oculata in the mangrove prop-root habitat of Puerto Rico. The copepod swarms form in shafts ofExpand

Toxicity of dispersant Corexit 9500A and crude oil to marine microzooplankton.
In 2010, nearly 7 million liters of chemical dispersants, mainly Corexit 9500A, were released in the Gulf of Mexico to treat the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. However, little is still known about theExpand
