Biological investigations of marine copepods have recently involved the use of chemical and biochemical techniques with increased frequency. The contributors to this collection of critical reviews provide a survey of the research projects already completed and draw attention to problems requiring further investigation. Beginning with a summary of basic chemical composition and energy content, subsequent chapters discuss lipids, enzymes involved in vital functions, and solid excretion's effects on the nitrogen and phosphorous cycles in the sea. Designed to meet a wide range of needs, this valuable sourcebook is the first to assemble and review the extensive literature on studies of this kind for marine biologists and ecologists, zoologists, comparative biochemists, oceanographers, insect physiologists, and geochemists.
