[The dominant copepod species, Canthocalanus pauper (Giesbrecht, 1888), Oncaea venusta Philippi, 1843, Temora turbinata (Dana, 1849), and Undinula vulgaris (Dana, 1849), collected from the sea around northern Taiwan and from the southern East China Sea extending to the Okinawa Trough, were analysed for trace metals (Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, and Zn) to study possible spatial heterogeneity in these species of copepods. Trace metal concentrations ranged as follows: Cd, 0.39-141.78 μg/g; Co, 0.03-91.9 μg/g; Cr, 2.26-243.5 μg/g; Cu, 4.36-195.5 μg/g; Fe, 19.96-2886.9 μg/g; Mn, 5.34-735.8 μg/g; Ni, 1.69-954.9 μg/g; Pb, 0.04-85.8 μg/g; and Zn, 5.57-941.8 μg/g. The average concentration of trace metals in the copepod samples analysed follows the sequence: Fe > Zn > Ni > Mn > Cu > Cr > Cd > Co > Pb. The sequence of total metal contents in the copepods is: Oncaea venusta > Temora turbinata > Canthocalanus pauper > Undinula vulgaris. The content of the same metal shows considerable variation both intra- and inter-specifically, and the difference in concentration can vary 1 to 3 orders of magnitude. We also found that metal concentrations in males are higher than in females in Oncaea venusta and Undinula vulgaris. In addition, copepod metal quota also display spatial variation: coastal water > southern East China Sea > Kuroshio Water, suggesting that the metal contents of copepods are influenced by the water quality of their marine environment. Les espèces dominantes de copépodes, Canthocalanus pauper (Giesbrecht, 1888), Oncaea venusta Philippi, 1843, Temora turbinata (Dana, 1849), et Undinula vulgaris (Dana, 1849), collectées de la mer autour du nord de Taiwan et au sud-est de la mer de Chine jusqu'a la fosse Océanique d'Okinawa ont été analysées pour les métaux traces (Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, et Zn) afin d'étudier une possible hétérogénéité spatiale chez ces espèces de copépodes. Les concentrations de ces métaux présentent les valeurs suivantes: Cd, 0,39-141,78 μg/g; Co, 0,03-91,9 μg/g; Cr, 2,26243,5 μg/g; Cu, 4,36-195,5 μg/g; Fe, 19,96-2886,9 μg/g; Mn, 5,34-735,8 μg/g; Ni, 1,69-954,9 μg/g; Pb, 0,04-85,8 μg/g; et Zn, 5,57-941,8 μg/g. La concentration moyenne de ces métaux dans les échantillons de copépodes analysés suit la séquence: Fe > Zn > Ni > Mn > Cu > Cr > Cd > Co > Pb. La séquence du contenu total en métaux dans les copépodes est: Oncaea venusta > Temora turbinata > Canthocalanus pauper > Undinula vulgaris. La quantité d'un même métal montre des variations intra- et inter-spécifiques considérables, et la différence en concentration peut varier entre 1 et 3 d'ordre d'amplitude. Nous avons aussi trouvé que les concentrations en métal chez les mâles sont plus élevées que chez les femelles chez Oncaea venusta et Undinula vulgaris. De plus, les quotas de métaux par copépode montrent des variations spatiales: eau côtière > sud-est de la mer de Chine > eaux de Kuroshio, suggérant que le contenu en métal des copépodes est influencé par la qualité de l'eau de leur environnement marin., The dominant copepod species, Canthocalanus pauper (Giesbrecht, 1888), Oncaea venusta Philippi, 1843, Temora turbinata (Dana, 1849), and Undinula vulgaris (Dana, 1849), collected from the sea around northern Taiwan and from the southern East China Sea extending to the Okinawa Trough, were analysed for trace metals (Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, and Zn) to study possible spatial heterogeneity in these species of copepods.
