Abstract

The hydrography, chlorophyll (Chl) a and egg production of the copepods Paracalanus pan us (Claus), Acartia lilljeborgii Giesbrecht, Acartia clausi Giesbrecht and Centropages furcatus were estimated daily between 7 February and 5 March 1998 in Bahia Magdalena, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Temperature was homogeneous throughout the water column during the study (20 degrees C).
