Copepods play central roles in pelagic food webs linking primary production to higher trophic levels. Biomarkers (lipids, stable isotopes) provide modern approaches to study dietary preferences and trophic interactions. A cluster analysis based on the fatty acid (FA) and fatty alcohol compositions of calanoid copepods (copepodids C4/C5 and adult stages) from the southeastern tropical Atlantic identified five distinct groups according to lipid composition and storage strategy, coinciding with… CONTINUE READING
