By comparing the food (phytoplankton and microzooplankton) inside the jars before and after a 24-hour feeding period, we could estimate the grazing rates and behaviour of copepods
and then compare the estimates across the three treatment conditions (ambient, 2100, and 2150) to see if there were differences.
A cluster analysis (CA) was performed to define copepod
assemblages using the Sorensen distance measure and [beta]-flexible linkage method ([beta] = 0.25), followed by a multi-response permutation procedure (MRPP) to test the significance of the resulting groups.
and their larval stages contributed 36.2%.
Peptide identifications and protein inferences for tandem mass spectra for each copepod
were found through Comet (2016.01 rev.
Systematics of the Caligidae, copepods
parasitic on marine fishes.
Changes in pigment concentration in copepod
gut are described by an exponential decay function allowing the following calculation, such that:
In order to try and integrate these different processes and the associated time-scales of GWD, the immunoepidemiological model of GWD presented here incorporates the actual parasite load of the human host and copepod
vector, rather than simply tracking the total number of infected humans.
Description stages except the parasitic females have typical copepod
Higher biovolume of copepods
was found in the control tank and in tanks stocked with L.
The bacteria attach to copepods
, receiving more food and protection than "free-living" bacteria in the open ocean, and perhaps some advantageous transportation, too.
