Stoichiometry of lipid synthesizing calanoid copepods in Arctic and sub-Arctic marine regions Insights into limitation and elemental cycling from characterization of C:N:P ratios
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2012-12-12)
Calanoid copepods, Calanus finmarchicus, C. glacialis and C. hyperboreus, are key species in Arctic and sub-Arctic marine ecosystems. They represent important prey for a number of species such as juvenile herring and cod because of their high but seasonally variable calorific value: they synthesize and store lipids as part of their survival strategy. Limitations in food quantity and quality can have ...
