The influence of cadmium on feeding, growth, food conversion, and reproduction of the estuarine copepod Pseudodiaptomus coronatus was studied at Cd-concentration of 5 μg × 1−1. Grazing, ingestion, growth rates, and gross growth efficiencies did not differ. The only detectable effect was a reduction of the daily reproductive rate to 50% of copepods not exposed to Cd.
