Abstract
Describes experiments determining growth rates for copepodites of the genera: Acartia, Centropages, Corycaeus, Oithona, Paracalanus, Parvocalanus and Temora in nearshore waters of Jamaica from in situ microcosm incubations. Suggests that frequently resources may limit growth in tropical copepod copepodites in a size-dependent manner....
