The longevity of 3 generations of normal and pollution impacted acartia clausi copepoda populations in the saronicos gulf greece
The longevity of 2 populations of the planktonic copepod A. clausi in the Saronicos Gulf was estimated. One group lived in a heavily polluted area, the other group in a relatively clean area. Three annual generations were studied. A comparison also was made between fed and unfed animals. A temperature of 14.degree. C appeared to be the most favorable for the survival of Acartia; the optimum survival temperature also depended upon the generation to which the Acartia belonged. The acclimatization temperature has a strong influence on survival. Acartia in its natural environment thrives best and has maximum longevity at colder temperatures. The pollution-adapted Acartia population survived longer under laboratory-controlled conditions than the population living in a nonpolluted area.
