Theoretical predictions for the relationships between duration of dormancy, reproductive life span, and dispersal ability developed for plants in temporally varying environments are applied here to crustaceans. Mathematical models suggest that diapause duration should negatively covary with adult life span, and that both diapause and life span should negatively covary with dispersal ability. A survey of 167 crustacean species from 20 orders and three classes confirms that species with prolonged… 

Diapause in Calanoid Copepods: within-clutch hatching patterns

TLDR
Results of high within-clutch variability and differences among clutches in diapause dynamics have important implications for the understanding of reproductive success of individuals producing diapausing eggs, parent-offspring conflict, and the evolution of bet-hedging strategies in invertebrates.

Diapause may promote coexistence of zooplankton competitors

TLDR
The study strongly suggests that the ecological effects of diapause encompass a wider range of temporal scales, from weekly to decadal, and levels of organization, from individuals to communities, than previously thought.

The Evolution of an Annual Life Cycle in Killifish: Adaptation to Seasonally Ephemeral Aquatic Habitat Across Two Continents

TLDR
This dissertation research is united by two themes - the evolution of reproductive mode, and adaptation to ephemeral and variable environments of small oviparous fishes within the Order Cyprinodontiformes, which have evolved an annual life cycle and are adapted to life in seasonallyEphemeral aquatic habitats.

Distribution and mortality of diapause eggs from calanoid copepods in relation to sedimentation regimes

TLDR
Phytoplankton pigments and 210Pb and 137Cs analyses indicated that the sedimentation regimes were different between two southern and two northern stations of the island Funen, Denmark.

TLDR
Its dramatic nature in certain cyclopoid copepods, in which diapausing individuals may occur at densities of > 106 per m2, is used to illustrate the enormous ecological significance of the phenomenon.

Egg morphology may underpin the successful distribution of large branchiopods in temporary waters

Invertebrate species from temporary aquatic ecosystems produce resistant dormant stages (i.e. eggs) that accumulate in long lived mixed egg banks in the sediment. These dormant eggs not only bridge

Role of diapause in dispersal and invasion success by aquatic invertebrates

TLDR
Analysis of dispersal vectors of diapausing species revealed the increasing role of human-mediated vectors of species dispersal during last century (intentional and unintentional introductions, specifically associated with shipping) in comparison with natural vectors.

Cyst bank life-history model for a fairy shrimp from ephemeral ponds

TLDR
Variation in age within the egg bank appears to be critical for the persistence of the population, and this attribute needs to be carefully considered when restoring or creating new pools for conservation purposes.

Dormancy in freshwater zooplankton: Induction, termination and the importance of benthic-pelagic coupling

Abstract.For a short-lived organism, such as a freshwater zooplankter, the ways of coping with years of local recruitment failure are either to disperse between habitats and recolonise or to disperse

Differential wind dispersal of cladoceran ephippia in a rock pool metacommunity

TLDR
The rock pools on Appledore Island, Gulf of Maine, USA, are home to several cladocerans, including Moina macrocopa and Daphnia pulex × pulicaria hybrids, and it is hypothesized that ephippia of both taxa would also be spatially dispersed by wind.

Diapause dynamics of two diaptomid copepod species in a large lake

Skistodiaptomus oregonensis and Leptodiaptomus minutus produce diapausing eggs in a large lake, Oneida Lake, in New York State. The timing of the switch from production of subitaneous (immediately

Environmental variability and the persistence of multiple emergence strategies

TLDR
The model results demonstrate that, given a range of between-year variance in mortality, multiple strategies for timing of emergence can persist in a common environment for ecologically relevant periods of time and suggest that variability in year-to-year selection pressures may play an important role in determining the evolution of life histories.

TLDR
The results suggest that short generation time and high reproductive capacity permit rapid recovery from population reductions.

Among three sympatric species of epibenthic amphipods found at different tide marks at Jamaica Bay, New York (USA), the length of time juveniles spend with the mother increases and the number of

The Relationship Between Adult Size and Brooding in Marine Invertebrates

TLDR
None of the explanatory hypotheses which have been advanced fits all reported cases of greater brooding with smaller adult size, and life history correlates of both adult size and brood care are numerous, so the trend may result from selection for different life history traits in different taxa.

The role of dormancy and emergence patterns in the dynamics of a freshwater zooplankton community

TLDR
Emergence rates of two cladoceran species and two Calanoid copepod species from sediments were monitored weekly in Bullhead Pond over a 3.5-yr period, suggesting that eggs can remain viable in the sediments for at least 3 yr.

The Timing of Copepod Diapause as an Evolutionarily Stable Strategy

TLDR
A computer simulation of the copepod's life history is developed and found, in close agreement with simulation-derived ESSs, that D. sanguineus starts making diapausing eggs 1.3 generations before the major onset of fish-induced mortality.
