Light Primes the Escape Response of the Calanoid Copepod, Calanus finmarchicus
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-06-27)
The timing and magnitude of an escape reaction is often the determining factor governing a copepod’s success at avoiding predation. Copepods initiate rapid and directed escapes in response to fluid signals created by ...
Grazing Rates of Calanus finmarchicus on Thalassiosira weissflogii Cultured under Different Levels of Ultraviolet Radiation
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011-10-18)
UVB alters photosynthetic rate, fatty acid profiles and morphological characteristics of phytoplankton. Copepods, important grazers of primary production, select algal cells based upon their size, morphological traits, ...
The three-dimensional prey field of the northern krill, Meganyctiphanes norvegica, and the escape responses of their copepod prey
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2010-02-24)
In the north Atlantic, Meganyctiphanes norvegica feeds predominantly on copepods, including Calanus spp. To quantify its perceptual field for prey, and the sensory systems underlying prey detection, the responses of tethered ...
