Populations of copepods
, particularly cyclopoids, are capable of colonization and dispersal during post-glacial periods in North America (Lewis and Reid, 2007); these forms could have been stranded in these isolated aquatic systems and undergone speciation.
Short-term variability of copepod
abundance in Jurumirin reservoir, Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Seasonal and long-term variations in the body size of planktonic copepods
in the northern Baltic Sea.
3] outdoor tanks in which copepods
bloom within 24-48 hours.
Domination of early life stages of rotifers and copepods
, especially those of copepod
nauplii, within the plankton community resulted in the minimum individual weight values in early spring.
For the first half degree Celsius above what they were used to, the copepods
tolerated the heat.
Scientists now have a tool to understand more thoroughly how copepods
adapt, and may be better able to predict when and where population changes will occur for this planktonic crustacean on which many fisheries depend.
biodiversity as an indicator of changes in ocean and climate conditions of the northern California current ecosystem.
parasites of freshwater fish: Ergasilus, Achtheres, and Salmincola.
are ingested by the second intermediate hosts (fish, eels, frogs, birds, and reptiles), and larvae mature to the third stage.
Diet consisted mostly of harpacticoid, calanoid and cycloid copepods
and other small crustaceans.
feed on certain types of algae, whose growth may drastically increase due to nutrient influx resulting from decaying grasshopper corpses, thus more algae means more copepods
and more cholera bacteria.
