[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The goal of the present study was to understand the feeding ecology of copepods in the upper water layers of the western Arctic Ocean. We investigated the trophic ecology of copepods collected at the sea ice water interface and from the water column. The objective was to understand the feeding ecology of copepods that dominate the plankton in the ARCTIC at different spatial (horizontal and ... View entire text

Purpose: 1) The analysis of gut contents using microscopy (LM and SEM - at Sangmyung University) and the analysis of chlorophyll a gut contents
2) Feeding experiments with algal cultures from the Arctic and other invertebrates
3) To the ecology and evolution of zooplankton with particular emphasis on the Copepoda
4) The analysis of their trophic biology and ecology by microscopic techniques (LM, TEM, SEM) Statistical analysis(correlation) between the gut pigment contents of copepod species and environmental parameters such as chlorophyll a concentration of ambient waters, seawater temperature and illumination (time of day/ season)
