Also, the biomass of cladocerans and copepods
decreased (P = 0.002, [R.sup.2] = 0.4, [F.sub.1,16] = 13.3 and P < 0.001, [R.sup.2] = 0.3, [F.sub.1,16] = 9.3, respectively) from 1992 to 2013 (Table 2).

were identified to species level and copepodites were identified to family level.
The three major orders of planktonic copepods
(calanoida, cyclopoida and harpacticoida) demonstrated different roles along the estuary.
(Pleuromamnia xiphias (Giesbrecht, 1889)) were collected off the coast of Bermuda (3[GAMMA]39.93N, 64[degrees]00.14W; 31[degrees]32.00N, 63[degrees]37.02W) near the BATS site.
Systematics of the Caligidae, copepods
parasitic on marine fishes.
We then exposed groups of 5 Nile tilapia, fathead minnows, or mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) to groups of 50 copepods
Saiz & Calbet (2007) found that ingestion rates of calanoid copepods
, when related to food availability, temperature and body size, can be explained in about 80% by a combination of these factors, while body size alone explains less than 10% of total variance.
This consists of killing the copepods
in water (the intermediate host) by applying a chemical called temephos, an organophosphate, to unsafe drinking water sources every month during the transmission season, thus reducing vector population and reducing the chances of individuals contracting the disease [2, 6, 7].
