We studied female fertilization status in North Sea summer populations and laboratory cultures of the marine copepod Temora longicornis and found fractions of fertilized females in both field and laboratory populations that were much smaller (<50%) than predicted by a theoretical model that...
Zooplankton vertical distribution data and velocity estimates from a hydrodynamic model were employed to determine zooplankton daily exchange during four cruises conducted from March to June 2010 in Rivers Inlet, a fjord in central British Columbia, Canada. Zooplankton transport rates varied...
We determined reproductive and growth rates of three common copepods in the low-salinity zone of the San Francisco Estuary during spring–summer of 2006 and 2007. Rates were low, particularly during summer. The egg production rate of Eurytemora affinis in spring averaged ∼3 eggs female −1...
We analyzed the species composition of pelagic chaetognaths in the Indo-Pacific region as reported in published papers to demonstrate geographic variation in their species diversity and its relationships with environmental variables. The resulting latitudinal pattern in species richness (SR) was...
Phytoplankton community analysis is important with respect to natural or human-induced changes in the marine environment. Because of the efforts involved and the limitations of traditional methods, molecular sensing approaches are becoming more popular. Among others, microarray techniques...
Ecological indicators are used extensively as tools to manage environmental resources. In the oceans, indicators of plankton can be measured using a variety of observing systems including: mooring stations, ships, autonomous floats and ocean colour remote sensing. Given the broad range of...
Few studies have been made on planktonic food webs of temperate ecosystems, especially those from the Southern Atlantic Ocean, using molecular biomarkers. The fatty acid compositions of suspended particulate matter (SPM), microplankton and mesozooplankton were studied during summer and winter at...
Cyanobacteria may reduce Daphnia fitness through their toxicity, low nutritional value or poor manageability. In this study, the relative importance of the low nutritional value and poor manageability of cyanobacteria on Daphnia life history were determined. To separate these two aspects of...
Lake Taihu, a large eutrophic freshwater lake in China, has suffered severe Microcystis blooms since the mid-1980s. In situ nutrient enrichment experiments were conducted to investigate the spatial and seasonal patterns of size-fractionated phytoplankton growth in Lake Taihu. Growth rates were...
To investigate the combined effect of temperature and light availability on organic matter production and degradation during a winter/spring phytoplankton bloom in Kiel Bight, we conducted a mesocosm study applying two temperature regimes, ambient (T + 0) and plus 6°C (T + 6) and three...
