The feeding behaviour of the nauplii of the copepods Acartia grani (calanoid) and Oithona davisae (cyclopoid) was investigated in relation to the different motility capabilities of their prey. The prey were the motile dinoflagellate Heterocapsa sp. (equivalent spherical diameter, ESD = 12.8 μm) and the non-motile diatom Thalassiosira weissflogii (ESD = 14.4 μm). Functional response feeding experiments showed that A. grani nauplii exhibited higher ingestion rates on the motile than on the non… CONTINUE READING
