E€ective escape behavior contributes to the success of copepods in planktonic communities. The kinematics of escape were studied in tethered Undinula vulgaris (Calanoida) by analyzing the timing and magnitude of their power strokes to a precisely controlled, sudden mechanical perturbation in the surrounding water. Copepods responded with rapid swims to water velocities of 36 to 86 lm s. Reaction times were under 2.5 ms following stimulus onset. The time course of force exerted was complex, but… CONTINUE READING
