A new calanoid copepod species Scaphocalanus emine n. sp. is described for the first time from the Iskenderun Bay, northeastern Levantine Basin. S. emine is similar to S. affinis (Sars, 1905) having both identical orientation of the posterolateral corners of the cephalothorax and a median crest on the forehead. The new species is also similar in some features to S. affinis in the structure of Re1P1- lacking the outer marginal spine and by the presence of the rounded apex on the distal internal…

Species composition, abundance and biomass of Copepoda in plankton of the northern Levantine Basin (eastern Mediterranean)

Multivariate analyses have shown the formation of distinct seasonal communities of copepod species throughout the year, and the observed seasonality in community structure is suggested to be a result of wide range changes in temperature Throughout the year.
