Climate change affects low trophic level marine consumers: warming decreases copepod
size and abundance.

free-living, parasitic), and visually guided behaviors (ontogenetic migrators, diel vertical migrators) (Table 1), as well as a diversity of copepod
lineages, with species representing eight families from four taxonomically diverse orders across known copepod
1 mL of the condensed sample was used to count the individuals of protozoa and 1 mL was used to count the number of rotifera, cladocera and copepods

Description stages except the parasitic females have typical copepod
Colonisation processes range from r- to k-strategist species, initially with the dominance of small species (including rotifers, protozoans, small cladocerans and cyclopoid copepods
), which tend to be replaced by large species, such as large cladocerans and calanoid copepods
(Matsumura-Tundisi et al.
Both inhabit similar coastal environments with my copepod
species, but Vibrio sp.
Cladoceran populations are more likely than copepod
populations to be depressed by CuS[O.
