Usage Examples English
  • Because of its fragile structure, image acquisition of gelatinous zooplankton requires the assistance of computer visioning.
  • Cannonballs eat mainly zooplankton such as veligers, and also all forms of red drum larvae.
  • The spiny water flea is causing serious concerns about the lakes of Canada, with the problem being that it feeds on zooplankton and can actually eliminate zooplankton species.
  • 7. Small-sized zooplankton become the dominant type of zooplankton because they are less vulnerable to fish predation.
  • Zooplankton-mediated release of DOC occurs through sloppy feeding, excretion and defecation which can be important energy sources for microbes.

  • Larger zooplankton can be predatory on smaller zooplankton.
  • They are then consumed by zooplankton that range in size from a few micrometers in diameter in the case of protistan microzooplankton to macroscopic gelatinous and crustacean zooplankton.
  • In the Southern Ocean, Ashjian studied the horizontal and vertical distributions of zooplankton.
  • Increase in jellyfish predation on zooplankton during blooms can also alter trophic pathways.
  • Through the seasonal vertical migration of zooplankton, the lipid pump creates a net difference between lipids transported to the deep during the fall (when zooplankton enter diapause) and what returns to the surface during the spring, resulting in the sequestration of lipid carbon at depth.

  • Haida eddies affect zooplankton distribution by transporting nearshore species into the deep ocean.
  • Ocean acidification raises CO2 levels in the ocean and has significant effects on zooplankton communities.
  • "Limacina helicina" is a major component of the polar zooplankton.
  • Dharamtar creek maintains rich zooplankton standing stock (av. ...
  • Upwelling and primary production follow the onset of a strong wind within a few days (Mann & Lazier, 1996). Zooplankton, such as copepods, take longer to respond to the abundance of food available because they have life cycles of weeks rather than days.

  • When zooplankton is abundant, that serves as the primary food source; when zooplankton is scarce, diluviana will feed on phytoplankton, suspended organic detritus or from the surface of benthic organic deposits.
  • Instead, they are heterotrophic, and extend long tentacles at night to catch passing zooplankton; their large polyp size allows them to take relatively large zooplankton.
  • Ohman has published over 155 peer-reviewed scientific articles on topics including the population ecology of marine zooplankton, especially planktonic copepods; Climate change effects on California Current pelagic food webs; Trait-based approaches to zooplankton ecology; Microscale optical and acoustic distributions of zooplankton via "Zooglider"; Digital imaging of zooplankton and Deep Learning classification; High frequency multi-disciplinary moorings; El Niño-Southern Oscillation effects on zooplankton populations; Predator-prey interactions; Mortality estimation and other demographic techniques for stage-structured zooplankton populations; Zooplankton Diel Vertical Migration; and other subjects.
