Quantity 25 of this authoritative assessment sequence maintains the excessive common set via the editors some time past. Marine biologists all over have come to worth and revel in the big variety of thought-provoking papers written through invited experts.In this quantity are experiences of 4 animal teams which span the full diversity of the marine foodstuff chain. The function of parasites in ecology is a transforming into curiosity and the parasites of zooplankton are defined intimately for the 1st time. points of thegastropods, cephalopods and fish existence also are tested intimately.

Example text

Palsson concluded that egg-loss rates were mostly due to small invertebrate predators such as snails and caprellid amphipods. 0 eggsjindividualj day. Estimates of in situ egg densities combined with potential egg-consumption rates showed that predation loss could have equalled or exceeded the initial cohort egg-density values. Earlier predator exclusion studies had demonstrated that bird and fish predators were responsible for 30-80% of herring egg loss (Outram, 1958; Steinfeld, 1972). Predation on sand eel larvae by Parathemisto japonica varies seasonally 48 K.

Veer (1985) also noted a dramatic drop in abundance of flounder larvae with increasing biomass of coelenterates and concluded that the timing of larval immigration into the Wadden Sea may be important for survival. Because herring eggs are demersal, they are not vulnerable to most pelagic predators. But, birds (Palsson, 1984),%fishes (Johannessen, 1980) and benthic invertebrates (Palsson, 1984) can consume enormous numbers of herring eggs. Palsson monitored mortality rates of Pacific herring egg cohorts derived from discrete spawning events.

9(d)). Trends of increasing vulnerability as prey size increases have been shown by many investigators (see Zaret, 1980), and most recently by Pepin et al. (1987) for Atlantic mackerel feeding on various larvae. Brownell (1985) reported that juvenile cape anchovy will cannibalize the largest anchovy larvae possible. Folkvord and Hunter (1986) presented prey vulnerability curves for northern anchovy cannibalizing larval anchovy similar to that in Fig. 9(d). Yolk-sac anchovy larvae were less vulnerable because of low visibility; maximum predation rate was attained on first-feeding larvae before improved escape abilities or predator gape limitation caused a decrease in vulnerability .
