Abstract/Summary

In zooplankton copepod studies there is often the requirement to be able to identify the six copepodite developmental stages of different species, or to know their body dimensions. However, this information is not available for many species, or is dispersed through the literature. This guide gathers together both original and previously published information on morphology and measurements for the stages of twenty-six common North Atlantic copepod species and tabulates them in a standard format. For each species additional notes useful in their identification are also given.
