Intrusions of the Kuroshio Current in the northern South China Sea affect copepod assemblages of the Luzon Strait
We analyse the influence of the Kuroshio Current on copepod assemblages in the northern South China Sea. The assumption was tested whether predominant current regimes bring marine zooplankton andExpand

TAXONOMIC COMPOSITION AND SEASONAL DISTRIBUTION OF COPEPOD ASSEMBLAGES FROM WATERS ADJACENT TO NUCLEAR POWER PLANT I AND II IN NORTHERN TAIWAN
The nuclear power plants are very important and cheap electric power source for Taiwan. However, the Nuclear Power Plant I and II (NPP I and II) are located in the northern Taiwan where the mostExpand

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 andExpand

Copepod gut contents, ingestion rates, and feeding impacts in relation to their size structure in the southeastern Taiwan Strait
Copepod gut contents, ingestion rates, and grazing impact on phytoplankton were estimated at 19 sampling stations off the Penghu Archipelago (the Pescadores), in the Taiwan Strait during the summerExpand

Monsoon-driven succession of copepod assemblages in coastal waters of the northeastern Taiwan strait
Monsoon winds (a southwesterly (SW) monsoon during summer and a northeasterly (NE) monsoon during winter) were shown to play pivotal roles in shaping species richness and diversity of planktonicExpand

Copepods Assemblages in an Embayment of Taiwan during Monsoonal Transitions
In coastal waters around the island of Taiwan, oceanic currents are mainly influenced by the prevailing East Asian monsoonal winds: the northeasterly (NE) monsoon during winter and the southwesterlyExpand

Mesh size affects abundance estimates of Oithona spp. (Copepoda, Cyclopoida)
Retrieval by different mesh-sized plankton nets is compared, using the abundance and distribution patterns of cyclopoid copepods of the genus Oithona W. Baird, 1843 as a case study. MesozooplanktonExpand

Non-NMDA receptor antagonist attenuates antinociception induced by morphine but not β-endorphin, D-Pen2-D-Pen5-enkephalin, and U50, 488H administered intracerebroventricularly in mice
The antinociception induced by morphine but not beta-endorphin, D-Pen2-D-Pen5-enkephalin (DPDPE), or U50, 488H (trans-3,4-dichloro-N-methyl-N-[2-(1-pyrrolidinyl) cyclohexyl] benzeocetamide)Expand
