Title: Biochemical studies on some Tropical Esturine Zooplankton Species
Author: Madhu Pratap,M; Haridas,P; Venugopal,P
Abstract: Percentages of protein, carbohydrate and lipid which form the major biochemical constituents of 10 species of zooplankton from Cochin backwaters were estimated . Protein invariably formed the major constituent in terms of dry weight. Carbohydrate content was in general very poor . Both protein and lipid were low for organisms with higher water content and did not show any reciprocal relationship . The results in general supported the view that protein may function as a metabolic reserve in zooplankton and that the availability of a constant supply of food may render large amount of lipid storage unnecessary in tropical zooplankton.
