-Natalia Osma
Título: Predicting in vivo O2 consumption rate from ETS activity and bisubstrate enzyme kinetics in cultured marine zooplankton

Presentation of the results of a new prediction model of respiration, based on the measurement of enzyme substrates.

-Daniel Bondyale
Título: Respiration of marine mysid, Leptomysis lingvura, measured by four different methodologies

Comparison of different methodologies for studying respiration and the various advantages and disadvantages of each method.

-Alejandro Marrero
Título: Can zooplankton secondary production models predict growth in the marine mysid Leptomysis lingvura (G.O. Sars, 1866)?

Results of the study of the growth of a species of mysid, which would allow us to study the possible application of secondary production models to this species.
