Feeding on natural plankton populations and respiration of the small cyclopoid copepod Oithona similis were measured during the warm season in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, USA. Although O.similis did not significantly ingest small autotrophic and heterotrophic flagellates (2-8 urn), this copepod actively fed on >10 p.m particles, including autotrophic/heterotrophic (dino)flagel- lates and ciliates, with clearance rates of 0.03-0.38 ml animal"1 h"1. The clearance rates increased with the prey… CONTINUE READING
