The pelagic copepods in the Strait of Dover (Eastern English Channel). A commented inventory 120 years after Eugène CANU

Abstract : This paper is a commented list of copepod species collected, using plankton nets, during a series of oceanologic cruises in the Strait of Dover (1975-2008). It follows in the footsteps the historic work first carried out by the French copepodologist Eugene Canu in 1888. It brings up-to-date the list carried out by Glacon (1975). A total of 35 species are listed here, some of which have to this day rarely been seen. The copepod diversity in the Eastern English Channel is oil the whole relatively low. The meroplanktonic form "Saphirella" (Scott, 1894) found in the Eastern English Channel and in the South of the North Sea and Eurytemora americana (Williams, 1906) found in the Dunkirk harbour are mentioned and described. Brief notes are given on ecological preferences of each species and their relative abundance
