Table 1 Abundances of chaetognaths used in the simulations and equivalent in situ values derived from literature

From: Behaviour-dependent predation risk in swimming zooplankters

Chaetognath abundance
Model Equivalent to
C 1 1 ind. V d  −1 Approximately 10 ind. m−3 (typical year-round abundance)
C 2 5 ind. V d  −1 Approximately 40 ind. m−3 (typical of peak periods)
C 3 17 ind. V d  −1 Approximately 140 ind. m−3 (limit case of excess abundance)
