Abstract

The quantitative biology of the following ten species of planktonic copepods is included in the present study: Pseudodiaptomus aurivilli, Calanopia thompsoni, Acartia erythraea, Paracalanus aculeatus, P. parvus, Calanopia aurivilli, Acrocalanus gibber, A. monachus, Euterpina aciitifrons and Oithona rigida. There have been three principal aims: (a) determination of the breeding seasons of different copepods; (b) estimation of quantitative seasonal distribution and (c) determination, if possible, of the number of broods in a year and the longevity of broods. The data obtained during the present studies on these subjects are presented, and compared with earlier works and points of interest are discussed.
