Effects of temperature and food abundance on grazing and short-term weight change in the marine copepod Acartia hudsonica

  title={Effects of temperature and food abundance on grazing and short-term weight change in the marine copepod Acartia hudsonica},
  author={Edward G. Durbin and Ann G. Durbin},
Ingestion and short-term weight change in adult female Acartia hudsonica were investigated at 4.5”, 8”, 12”, and 16°C with the solitary diatom Thalassiosira constricta as food. Narragansett Bay copepods were preadapted to the desired temperature and saturating food level for 3 d to standardize feeding history before the experiments. Maximal ingestion rates at the four temperatures were 16,460, 14,120, 2 1,470, and 29,960 cells copepod-‘d-l or 43.9, 37.2, 67.9, and 92.9% body C (Q10 = 2.3) and… CONTINUE READING
