Variations in size (prosome), body volume and proportion (prosome:urosome ratio) of female Acartia tonsa copepods were studied during three different seasons (June, October and November) in a network of 13 stations distributed throughout the Berre Lagoon, near Marseille. Strong morphological differences were found between the populations collected through the different seasonal surveys, but also between the different stations or groups of stations. They were related to the variations of… CONTINUE READING
