The life-cycle of Cyprideis torosa (Crustacea, Ostracoda)

  title={The life-cycle of Cyprideis torosa (Crustacea, Ostracoda)},
  author={Carlo Heip},
The life-cycle of the dominant brackish water ostracod Cyprideis torosa (Jones, 1850) has been studied during 4 years. The species has only one generation anually. Reproduction is fairly similar throughout the years and appears to be tuned in to temperature. The number of adults has one peak every year and can be described by two exponential functions, one for the increase and one for the decrease. Mortality is very similar every year and approximately constant for months. Cyprideis torosa is… CONTINUE READING
