Table 4 Residence times in different states

From: Pseudodiaptomus marinus Sato, 1913, a new invasive copepod in Lake Faro (Sicily): observations on the swimming behaviour and the sex-dependent responses to food

  Breaking (mean ± SD) (s) Cruising (mean ± SD) (s) Jumping (mean ± SD) (s)
Filtered water
  Males 0.12 ± 0.79 0.08 ± 0.08 0.05 ± 0.02
  Females 0.23 ± 0.91 0.06 ± 0.04 0.04 ± 0.02
  Ovigerous f. 0.20 ± 1.36 0.07 ± 0.06 0.06 ± 0.05

  1. Symbolic analysis: residence times in seconds of each reproductive stage in each possible state in case of filtered water and in case of food in excess.
