Dynamics of lipid and fatty acid composition of the hyperiid amphipod Themisto: a bipolar comparison with special emphasis on seasonality

Themisto in polar regions represents a direct link between the zooplankton community and higher predators. Lipid characteristics were reviewed for both polar populations: T. libellula and T. abyssorum in the Arctic, and T. gaudichaudii in the Antarctic. Lipids composition showed similarities for all species with lipid class structures dominated by neutral… CONTINUE READING
