In order to assess a natural size spectrum of copepods
, we used data on copepod
abundances from a zooplankton time series at Station 18, located over the continental shelf off Concepcion (36[degrees]30'S).
Two new species of ectinosomatid copepods
(Harpacticoida: Ectinosomatidae) from the Caribbean coast of Colombia.
Male parasitic copepods
die after copulation in the preadult stages, so those that are seen attached to fish are generally mature females with distinctive paired egg sacs at the posterior end [11,13].
Higher biovolume of copepods
was found in the control tank and in tanks stocked with L.
Species of rotifers, copepods
and cladocerans were classified as their habits in planktonic or non-planktonic, according to Koste (1978), Segers (1995), Lima et al.
At the time, I knew nothing about molecular biology or copepods
Two parasitic copepods
, Pseudomyicola spinosus and Modiolicola gracilis associated with edible mussels, Mytilus galloprovincialis and Mytilus californianus from Baja California NW Mexico.
Critically, however, the post-treatment non-nauplii zooplankton community at PR was devoid of cladocerans (less than one percent), being comprised solely of copepods
Spatial and temporal changes in biomass, production and assemblage structure of mesozooplanktonic copepods
in the tropical south-west Atlantic Ocean.
Vortsjarv in spring: 11 cladocerans (24%), 10 copepods
(22%), and 24 rotifers (54%).
insignis worms from raccoons (Procyon lot or) in Georgia (USA) to infect colony-reared cyclopoid copepods
Unlike the more commonplace, high-resolution, lateral compound eyes of other Crustacea, copepods
use naupliar eyes, also referred to as "frontal" or "tri-partite" eyes, for spatial vision (Elofsson, 2006).
