Recent explanations of the adaptive values of vertical migration by zoo-plankton are difficult to express in terms of individual fitnesses. An earlier explanation of the demographic consequences of vertical migration incorporated an unnecessary and probably erroneous metabolic model. From empirical data on the effects of temperature on fecundity and development rates of the copepod Pseudocalanus minutus, the demographic effects of vertical migration in thermally stratified waters are worked out… Expand
Predation and the evolution of vertical migration in zooplankton
TLDR
Examination of nonmigratory and migratory populations of a copepod in alpine clear-water lakes in the Tatra Mountains of Poland supports the view that migratory behaviour in zooplankton is selected for as a means of evading fish predators. Expand
Diel vertical migration of zooplankton: optimum migrating schedule based on energy accumulation
TLDR
A simple optimization model demonstrates that such coexistence of the two migrating behaviors is possible in natural Daphnia populations, and suggests that internal conditions of zooplankton individuals may be important as a factor for determining migrating behavior of zoops. Expand
Ultimate Causes of Vertical Migration in Zooplankton: An Evaluation by Evolutionary Game Theory
TLDR
Diel vertical migration is a widespread but not well understood behaviour in freshwater and marine Zooplankton and as egg development time is inversely proportional to temperature, a lowered temperature increases generation time drastically but may reduce metabolic costs. Expand
Energetics of Vertical Migration in Chaoborus Trivittatus Larvae
TLDR
The energetic hypothesis for the adaptive value of vertical migration does not hold for C. trivittatus larvae in Eunice Lake, British Columbia and these larvae do not follow either of the migration strategies that is energetically most efficient. Expand
The adaptive significance of diel vertical migrations
TLDR
The focus of most research on vertical migration has shifted from the environmental control towards the search for ultimate reasons and the relative change of light intensity has been found to be the proximate cue that controls the upwards and downwards movements. Expand
The adaptive significance of die 1 vertical migration of zooplankton
Many taxa of both marine and freshwater zooplankton perform diel vertical migrations with amplitudes from a few to 100 metres (Hutchinson, 1967). The 'normal' pattern is an evening ascent and aExpand
Diurnal vertical migration: Adaptive significance and timing. Part 1. Selective advantage: A metabolic model1
TLDR
An unexpected prediction of this approach is that if maximizing net energetic gain is of greater selective importance than avoidance of visually orienting predators, grazers ought to migrate upward and begin feeding well before sunset, rather than after as the predation hypothesis presumes. Expand
Evaluation of Mysis partial diel vertical migration
Mass animal migrations represent large movements of biomass, energy, and nutrients with predictable patterns and important ecosystem-level consequences. Diel vertical migration (DVM) in aquaticExpand
A review of the adaptive significance and ecosystem consequences of zooplankton diel vertical migrations
TLDR
Recent advances in biotelemetry promise to allow the interaction between migrating zooplankton and diving air-breathing vertebrates to be explored in far more detail than hitherto. Expand
Ontogenetic diel vertical migration of the planktonic copepod Calanus sinicus in the Inland Sea of Japan
The ontogenetic diel vertical migration of the planktonic copepod Calanus sinicus was investigated in the Inland Sea of Japan in June 1989, when the water column was thermally weakly stratified.Expand

Effects of Temperature on Growth of Zooplankton, and the Adaptive Value of Vertical Migration
TLDR
It is shown that Bělehradek's temperature function gives a close fit to size and development rate of several species of zooplankters growing in adequate food supply, although conclusions do not depend on the theoretical content of this equation. Expand

PREDICTING DEVELOPMENT RATE OF COPEPOD EGGS
TLDR
The development times to hatching of eggs of several kinds of copepods were studied at controlled temperatures and Belehraek's temperature function, expressed as D = a(T - α)b, where D is development time, T the temperature, and α, a and b are constants, was fitted to the results. Expand

Bioenergetics of Vertical Migration
TLDR
It is suggested that light orientation is commonly used as a frame of reference for consumer populations in the higher latitudes of the sea because of the seasonal constancy of food input associated with light orientation and nocturnal exploitation and this would explain the high frequency of pronounced vertical migration observed among marine species of this region.
