Importance of wax esters and other lipids in the marine food chain: Phytoplankton and copepods
Two different metabolic pools are postulate to explain the origin of these long chain alcohols - polyunsaturated alcohols of the wax esters and phospholipid fatty acids, which were not affected by changes in the amount or type of food, probably because of their structural function.
Modes of cell capture in calanoid copepods
Descriptions of selective feeding in grazing trials using Coulter Counter data are influenced by the size above which the copepods can detect individual cells and by the proportions of the pregrazing particle spectrum larger and smaller than this threshold.
Predictability of patches of neritic salps and doliolids (Tunicata, Thaliacea)
An evaluation of data and published results on abundances of doliolids and salps from ocean margins reveals that a considerable degree of prediction is possible, based upon meteorological and boundary current intrusion dynamics.
Food ingestion by the marine planktonic copepod Paracalanus in relation to abundance and size distribution of food
Juveniles and adult females were presented a food spectrum of three algae of different sizes and it is hypothesized that the algal cell size for maximum nitrogen ingestion in upwelled waters is relatively small, round or square and close to the size threshold below which adult females do not sense individual cells.
Perceptive performance and feeding behavior of calanoid copepods
Determination des variables associees au comportement alimentaire des calanoides et amelioration des connaissance sur les bases de leur taux d'ingestion
Experimental records of the effects of food patchiness and predation on egg production of Acartia tonsa
The effects of predation and spatial patchiness in food distribution on egg production of the marine Calanoid copepod Acartia tonsa were investigated in the laboratory. A postexperiment egg
Oxygen consumption in relation to motion of marine planktonic copepods
It is concluded that not only body weight and temperature, but also the extent of motion will affect energy expenditures of planktonic copepods.
