|Title:||Copepods of Bahuda estuary (Orissa), east coast of India|
Panigrahy, R C
|Abstract:||Copepods of the Bahuda river estuary were studied during Dec. 1990-Nov. 1992 and the population was represented by 58 species blonging to calanoids (33), Cyclopoids (15) and harpacticoids (10). Marked seasonal variations have been observed with respect to the species composition of the Copepod fauna. Higher species diversity was encountered during the premonsoon season, when the estuary was under marine influence (average sai. 32.5-34.3 x 10(-3)), while an opposite trend was observed during monsoon season (average sal. 6.5-15.4 x 10(-3)). Based on their salinity tolerance, the copeppod fauna could be grouped as marine or orthostenohaline forms (6), euryhaline forms (26), brackish water forms (15) and limnetic forms (11).|
