Climate change is particularly rapid in the Arctic, where water temperatures are predicted to increase substantially with implications for Arctic marine organisms, especially ectotherms such as the calanoid copepod Calanus glacialis, a key herbivore in the Arctic marine ecosystem. Feeding depends on temperature, and recent studies indicate different thermal responses in ingestion and respiration implying a possible metabolic mismatch with increasing temperatures. We investigated the thermal… CONTINUE READING
