When intraspecific exceeds interspecific variance : Effects of phytoplankton morphology and growth phase on copepod feeding and fitness


When different growth phases (exponential or stationary) or forms (solitary cells or colonies) of a single clone of Phaeocystis globosa were fed to three copepods, grazing, measured indirectly by fecal-pellet production, on different types of P. globosa differed by nearly two orders of magnitude, with differences on this clone sometimes exceeding… (More)
