Giesecke, R., and Gonzalez, H. E. 2008. Reproduction and feeding of Sagitta enflata in the Humboldt Current system off Chile. - ICES Journal of Marine Science, 65: 361-370.This study is based on 3 years (August 2002-July 2005) of monthly zooplankton sampling at a fixed station located 18 km off Coliumo Bay (36°S), Chile. The reproduction of Sagitta enflata, its feeding rate, specific daily ration, and prey selectivity were analysed and related to several environmental variables: temperature… Expand

Diel vertical migration and feeding of chaetognaths in coastal waters of the eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
In order to coexist in an area of low productivity the chaetognath species follow the basic ecological rules of space, time and food-type separation, in order to reduce the inter- and intra-specific competition. Expand
Reproduction and structure of the population of the Chaetognath Parasagitta friderici in Guanabara Bay (Brazil) based on short term sampling.
TLDR
The intensification of reproduction during the spring, with juveniles occurring in the summer, seems to be related to the period of higher food supply during the rainy season and intrusions of the South Atlantic Central Water. Expand
Abundancia espacio temporal de Flaccisagitta enflata y de la comunidad Chaetognatha en un ciclo circadiano en el Sistema Lagunar de Bahía Magdalena, Baja California Sur, México
The chaetognath Flaccisagitta enflata abundance was determined in the Bahia Magdalena lagoon complex, Baja California Sur, Mexico. This study is based on two sampling methods, in the first oneExpand
Small Jellyfish as a Supplementary Autumnal Food Source for Juvenile Chaetognaths in Sanya Bay, China
TLDR
The results suggested that juveniles chaetognaths might consume small jellyfish as a supplementary food source under enhanced feeding competition in autumn. Expand
Temperature-regulated egg production rate, and seasonal and interannual variations in Paracalanus parvus
TLDR
Observed high abundances during times of extremely low female growth and low EPR suggest that the populations might be sustained by supplements from offshore, where their growth condition could be better (e.g. higher water temperature). Expand
Genetic diversity and connectivity of Flaccisagitta enflata (Chaetognatha: Sagittidae) in the tropical Atlantic ocean (northeastern Brazil)
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the topography of the port inlet, enclosured by a reef barrier, may constrain the water turnover ratio and thus migration rates of F. enflata in the TWA, and the null hypothesis of one randomly mating population cannot be accepted. Expand
Feeding habits and dietary overlap during the larval development of two sandperches (Pisces: Pinguipedidae)
TLDR
The results suggest the relative importance of both larval species as primary consumers of the pelagic web in nearshore environments of rocky temperate areas. Expand
Mesoscale distribution and population structure of the chaetognath Serratosagitta tasmanica (Thomson, 1947) from Southwestern Atlantic Ocean
ABSTRACT Although Serratosagitta tasmanica is widely distributed, there is little information on how hydrology affects its distribution, abundance and demography. In this study we analyzed theExpand
Distribuição espacial, diversidade e conectividade genética de Chaetognatha no Atlântico Oeste Tropical
TLDR
The Chaetognatha phylum in the TropicalWestern Atlantic was investigated in greater depth, demonstrating that even an holoplanktonic and cosmopolitan species may deviate from genetic homogeneity expected in a regional approach. Expand
Checklist do filo Chaetognatha do Estado de São Paulo, Brasil
TLDR
Although chaetognaths are eaten by numerous larger carnivorous organisms, in the food web they are important predators and a significant trophic link between small herbivores and larger predators, including important commercial fish species. Expand

Feeding of Sagitta enflata and vertical distribution of chaetognaths in relation to low oxygen concentrations
TLDR
Gut content analyses demonstrated that predation was principally focused on small copepod (<1500 μm), with greatest feeding activity occurring at night, and chaetognaths may strongly influence the abundance and size distribution of copepods in coastal upweelling ecosystems. Expand
Influence of food quantity and temperature on development and growth of the marine copepod Calanus chilensis from northern Chile
TLDR
The results indicate that C. chilensis is a highly sensitive species to lack of food, and is possibly subject to food shortage during its annual cycle in the coastal upwelling area of northern Chile. Expand
The diets of the chaetognaths Sagitta enflata, S. serratodentata atlantica and S. bipunctata at different seasons in Eastern Mediterranean coastal waters
TLDR
Gut content analysis showed that copepods were the predominant food organisms in the diet of these three predators and Cannibalism was observed mainly in S. bipunctata while S. serratodentata atlantica was found to be less cannibalistic. Expand
Feeding of the chaetognaths Sagitta elegans and Sagitta setosa at different seasons in Gullmarsfjorden, Sweden
TLDR
Feeding was most intensive at night in both species except for S. setosa, which is believed to reflect differences in size and vertical distribution and contribute to the sharp decrease in numbers of S.setosa at that time. Expand
Predator-limited population growth of the copepod Pseudocalanus sp.
TLDR
Although chaetognath recruitment and population growth appear to be directly coupled to the abundance of Pseudocalanus sp. Expand
Egg production, growth and development of the cyclopoid copepod Oithona similis
TLDR
Observations on the fecundity and growth rates of O.similis at varying food concentrations in the laboratory, and on seasonal variation in fecundities in a coastal, temperate ecosystem (Kattegat, Denmark) are reported. Expand
Vertical distribution and ecological significance of chaetognaths in the Arctic environment of Baffin Bay
TLDR
Calculations showed chaetognaths are major predators on copepod consuming between 1.2 and 1.3% of the standing crop of copepods per day. Expand
Seasonal population structure, vertical distribution and migration of the chaetognath Sagitta elegans in the Celtic Sea
TLDR
Detailed vertical zooplankton profiles were taken to study the seasonal population structure, vertical distribution and migration of this species in the Celtic Sea in 1978 and 1979 and it was assumed that reproduction continued at a low level over the winter. Expand
Coupling of life cycles of the copepods Calanus chilensis and Centropages brachiatus to upwelling induced variability in the central-southern region of Chile
TLDR
In addition to variability in the physical environment, biological interactions modulating changes in copepod mortality should be considered for understandingCopepod life cycles in highly productive upwelling systems. Expand
Seasonal biochemical composition and energy sources of Sagitta hispida
TLDR
Analysis of protein, fat, carbohydrate and ash in the chaetognath Sagitta hispidaConant over 1 year showed that, although protein is always the largest component, averaging 53% of the dry weight, it fluctuates widely. Expand
