Effects of climate variability on Calanus dormancy patterns and population dynamics in the Northwest Atlantic

  • Mechanistic explanation of dormancy in species of Calanus

  • Development of Calanus life cycle model

  • Evaluate how year-to-year variability in environmental conditions interacts with dormancy-control mechanisms to control Calanuspopulation dynamics.

Lipid accumulation window hypothesis

Lipid accumulation window hypothesis

  • Individual Calanus can only enter diapause if their food and temperature history allows them to accumulate sufficient lipid for overwintering and gonad development

  • Decision to proceed to dormancy is initiated when lipid stores reach a preset threshold (% by weight in stage CIV)

  • Exit from dormancy by endogenous timer or when lipid stores decrease below a preset threshold
