8%; unidentified and Fabricia sabella), and amphipods
Parasite-induced suppression of aggregation under predation risk in a freshwater amphipod
: sociality of infected amphipods
Copepods, chaetognaths, euphausiids and amphipods
were the most abundant groups during the study period, accounting for 87% of the total abundance (Fig.
The objectives of this study were to determine: (1) whether amphipods
A partial explanation for this difference between the Virginia and New Jersey study sites may lay in the fact that macroalgae is more common in the harvested and uncultivated areas in New Jersey than in Virginia (see section on Macroalgal biomass below), and ampeliscid amphipods
dominate abundance numbers by an order of magnitude in New Jersey relative to Virginia.
In addition to a single species of calanoid crustacean, at least 2 species of amphipod
Boulders with filamentous algae in the experiment served as an object of grazing for the palaemonid prawns and gammarid amphipods
and as a refuge for gammarids.
10k the number of species of amphipods
surviving at incredible depths
It's not just the amphipods
that are potentially at risk, but also animals that have yet to be discovered.
crustaceans in Earth's seconddeepest place, the 10,545m Sirena Deep
The list of susceptible invertebrates includes bivalves, odonates (dragonfly nymphs), polychaete worms, isopods and amphipods
, decapod shrimps and crabs, as well as native gastropods (Appleton et al.
The top predator of these caves, the spider waits with its front two legs raised in the air, then strikes passing amphipods
with incredible force and accuracy.
Crustaceans comprised five of the categories: unidentified crustacean fragments, zoea larvae, amphipods
(entire or tubes), copepods and shrimp.
Kotze and Lawes (2008) showed a positive relationship between the abundance of terrestrial amphipods
and degree of disturbance of the area where they are inserted.
These examples comprise studies in water-living insects, such as amphipods
and water striders, and also in land insects, as investigated in a recent study in Australian plague locusts that are at a higher risk of being eaten as mating pairs compared to single animals.
