ABSTRACT A study of reproductive patterns exhibited by harpacticoid copepods collected from submerged wood surfaces in Los Angeles and Long Beach Harbors indicates that two reproductive patterns exist, those species that breed continuously and those that breed seasonally. Species with continuous breeding generally had maximum reproductive peaks at different times of the year. Total harpacticoid densities recorded from this subtidal study are higher than those previously recorded from the sediment meiobenthos and are comparable to densities recorded for intertidal biotopes. The literature suggests that continuous breeding of phytal harpacticoids is the result of an unlimited food supply and the opportunistic nature of the species and not temperature. The wood surface of harbor pilings, in addition to macroalgae, provides a substrate for microbiotic colonization which is grazed on by harpacticoids.
