Résumé

Oxygen consumption rates of 2 harpacticoid copepods, one benthic, Enhydrosoma propinquum (Brady) and one benthopelagic, Longipedia helgolandica (Klie), were determined and compared with those of the pelagic harpacticoid Euterpina acutifrons. The respiratory rates of the 3 species differed significantly and could be correlated with activity patterns and habitat preferences. E. propinquum consumed the least oxygen, E. acutifrons an intermediate amount, and L. helgolandica the most per unit dry weight. Gravid L. helgolandica had a lower metabolic rate than the non-gravid females. The lower values for the gravid females most likely reflected the metabolic activity of the developing egg mass. Harpacticoids may be important contributors to total meiobenthic metabolism, since they respire more per unit weight than do nematodes.
