The copepod assemblage in the coastal waters of southwestern Taiwan was studied in January, June, and October 1997. Sixty-six species of copepods were found in samples collected in the upper 5 m of the water column. Abundant species included Acrocalanus gracilis , Canthocalanus pauper , Clausocalanus arcuicornis , Clausocalanus furcatus , Euchaeta rimana , Oncaea media , Paracalanus nanus , Temora turbinata , and Undinula vulgaris. Small copepods (<1 mm) made up the greatest proportion of the copepod community in terms of numerical abundance. Small- and medium-sized (1-2 mm) copepods contributed almost equally to the total copepod dry weight biomass. Large copepods (>2 mm) made up <5% of the copepod community in terms of numerical abundance and <20% in terms of dry weight biomass.

L'assemblage des copépodes vivant dans les eaux côtières au sud-ouest de Taiwan a été étudié en janvier, juin et octobre 1997. Soixante-six espèces ont été trouvées dans les échantillons récoltés dans les 5 m supérieurs de la colonne d'eau. Les espèces abondantes incluent Acrocalanus gracilis , Canthocalanus pauper , Clausocalanus arcuicornis , Clausocalanus furcatus , Euchaeta rimana , Oncaea media , Paracalanus nanus , Temora turbinata et Undinula vulgaris. Les petits copépodes (<1 mm) représentent la plus grande proportion de la communauté de copépodes en terme d'abondance numérique. Les copépodes de tailles petite et moyenne (1-2 mm) contribuent presqu'à parts égales à la biomasse totale de copépodes en poids sec. Les grands copépodes (>2 mm) représentent <5% de la communauté en terme d'abondance numérique et <20% en terme de biomasse exprimée en poids sec.
