The fatty acid profiles of wild adults and cysts of a population of the fairy shrimp Chirocephalus kerkyrensis from Circeo National Park (central Italy) were analysed at regular time intervals during the water phase of the pond, with the aim of relating eventual differences in fatty acid composition and profile to differences in environmental conditions. Four samplings were performed: at the beginning of adult life, at two intermediate stages, and at the end of the life cycle. The results show that lipid content and profile vary significantly in the samples examined, thus suggesting a relation with the fluctuations in the abiotic environmental variables, which, on their turn, cause variation in food quality and quantity.

Les profils d’acides gras des adultes et des œufs de durée d’une population de l’anostracé Chirocephalus kerkyrensis, provenant du parc National du Circeo (Italie centrale) ont été analysés à des intervalles de temps réguliers au cours de la phase en eau de la mare dans le but de déceler d’éventuelles différences dans la composition et le profil d’acides gras suivant les conditions de l’environnement. Quatre échantillonnages ont été réalisés: au début de la vie adulte, à deux stades intermédiaires et à la fin du cycle de vie. Les résultats montrent que le contenu en lipides et le profil varient significativement dans les échantillons examinés, suggérant ainsi une relation avec les fluctuations des variables abiotiques de l’environnement, qui à leur tour, peuvent modifier la qualité et la quantité de la nourriture.
