We compiled information from the literature on female and egg sizes and maximum egg production, growth and developmental rates in marine planktonic copepods. While specific growth and developmental rates are ~nvariant with body mass, weight-specific fecundity scales w ~ t h female body mass-026 in both broadcast-spawning and egg-carrying copepods. Egg sizes increase with female size and, consequently, egg production rates (no. of eggs p-' d-') are constant with size. Developmental rates were… CONTINUE READING
