Temperature effects on fecundity, development and survival of the benthopelagic calanoid copepod, Pseudocyclops xiphophorus

Although egg production rates in this species are low compared to other pelagic copepods, they are within the range of values reported for egg-carrying species, which indicates that the species is well adapted to the higher temperatures of coastal lagoons and brackish water lakes where it contributes to the biofouling community.

Fecundity and development of the bentho-pelagic copepod Pseudocyclops umbraticus: effects of temperature

Great fecundity at higher temperatures compared to other subtemperate species indicates that P. umbraticus is well adapted to the higher temperatures of coastal brackish basins, where itributes to the bio diversity of the plankton community at night as it migrates from the substratum into the water column.

Daily egg production ofTemora longicornis (Copepoda, Calanoida) during winter and early spring in the Marsdiep (Southern North Sea)

The egg production in winter gives a prebloom potential to maintain a stock of premature stages ready to utilize the algal spring bloom and the exceptionally high production rate observed at the end of March may be related to a developingPhaeocystis bloom.

Egg production and hatching success of Temora longicornis (Copepoda, Calanoida) in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence

Comparison with other studies indicated that environmental controls on fecundity of T. longicornis may differ among regions where this species is the dominant copepod, and it is concluded that EPR is food-limited in early summer in this region.

Grazing pressure of the calanoid copepod Temora longicornis on a Phaeocystis dominated spring bloom in a Dutch tidal inlet

The discrepancy between low grazing pressure and copepod development is explained by assuming that T. longicornis switched to heterotrophic food: a bloom of ciliates present during the Phaeocystis dominated period.

Seasonal dynamics of fecundity and recruitment of Temora longicornis in the Baltic Sea

Despite the pronounced seasonal variation in egg production, the recruitment of nauplii was continuously high except throughout the productive season, indicating that a low reproductive success was offset by female abundance.

Egg viability in the copepod Temora sty&ha

Estimates of production rate and viability of eggs are reported for Remora styIzj2ra collected in the Bay of Naples (Italy), indicating that under poorer food conditions copepods can maximize total egg production but not viability.

Production and Loss of Eggs in the Calanoid Copepod Centropages abdominalis Sato in Fukuyama Harbor, the Inland Sea of Japan

The calanoid copepod Centropages abdominalis occurred in the plankton from Novem ber 1986 to May 1987 (temperature range: 8.9 - 19.7 °C) in Fukuyama Harbor, in the central part of the Inland Sea of



Studies of larval herring (Clupea harengus L.) patch in the Buchan area. IV. Zooplankton distribution and productivity in relation to hydrographic features

It is suggested that in the Buchan area frontal water may provide the best longterm average feeding conditions for herring larvae, even though the conditions at any specific point in time may be somewhat different.

Abundance, age structure and in situ egg production rates of the copepod Temora longicornis in Long Island Sound, New York

The distribution, abundance, age structure, and in situ rates offecundity of the copepod Temora longicornis in Long Island Sound is described.

Growth and development of Calanus spp. (Copepoda) during spring phytoplankton succession in the North Sea

It seems that the retardation and arrestment of growth and development were an immediate response to a qualitative change of the food composition related to the successive blooms of different algal species.

Food limitation of production by adult Acartia tonsa in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island1

The overall mean egg production rate, dry weight, and cephalothorax length of the copepod after incubation for 48 h in the algae-enriched water were significantly greater than for copepods incubated in ambient bay water, indicating that theCopepods must have been continuously food limited in Narragansett Bay during summer.

Feeding, growth and reproduction of the marine planktonic copepod Temora longicornis Müller

INTRODUCTION The copepod Temora longicornis Miiller is one of the common zooplankton species in the North Sea and adjacent waters. All developmental stages have been recorded throughout the year off

Behavioural responses of the copepods Calanus helgolandicus and Temora longicornis to dinoflagellate diets

Differences in beat frequency in response to dinoflagellate diets are mirrored by other aspects of feeding activity, gut contents, egg production and mortality.
