Based on suggestions made at the Life Cycle Workshop, it was hypothesized that an intermediate host for Haplosporidium nelsoni (necessary to the parasite life cycle, in which some development, such as spores, occurs) would be a mobile species, probably a zooplankter
that would produce spores at about the time that oysters are first becoming infected in early summer.
De novo assembly of a transcriptome for Calanus finmarchicus (Crustacea, Copepoda)--the dominant zooplankter
of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Our zooplankton values were also lower in the presence of high values of nutrients and Chl-a during the January and October cruises, which could be due to the time lag between the transference from primary producers to zooplankter
Bythotrephes longimanus (Leydig 1860) is a predacious zooplankter
native to the Ponto-Caspian region that invaded the Great Lakes during the mid-1980s (Lehman 1987).
the average size or weight of a zooplankter
, was proposed by Gorokhova et al.
Larvae begin feeding on large phytoplankton and small zooplankter
and follow feeding on increasingly larger zooplankter
(Hunter, 1981), which was also observed in the present study as the fish grew in size it preferred larger zooplankton than smaller like C.
An exotic zooplankter
native to Asia, Australia, and Africa, D.
It infects a major marine zooplankter
, which occupies a key position in marine food webs.Even though predation by these marine plankton grazers is a major pathway of carbon transfer and nutrient recycling in marine and freshwater systems, we know next to nothing about the role viruses play in this system," noted Curtis.
feeding on just one type of particle can be seen as being in high gain mode as it lets the potential in other resource particles pass by with no attempt at capture.
Acute inhibition of protease and suppression of growth in zooplankter
, Moina macrocarpa, by Microcystis blooms collected in central India.
lumholtzi with completely developed spines and gape-limited predators is necessary before the ecological impacts of this exotic zooplankter
can be fully assessed.
