AbstractIn order to understand the interaction between extrinsic and intrinsic factors on the metamorphic success of Balanus amphitrite cyprids, we investigated the effect of cyprids energy reserves and physiological age (physiological condition of cyprids) on the metamorphic success under five different combinations of water temperature and salinity mimicking different seasons in subtropical Hong Kong: 18°C/30%o (winter), 22°C/34%o (spring), 28°C/30%o (summer), 28°C/20%o (rainy season), and 25°C/32%o (autumn). The energy reserves of the cyprids were quantified by the ratio of triacylglycerols (TAG) to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The metamorphic success of cyprids was distinctly influenced by their physiological condition and laboratory-mimicked seasons. There was a significant interaction between these factors. In clear contrast to young cyprids with low-TAG/DNA ratio, there was no difference in the metamorphic success of aged cyprids with high-TAG/DNA ratio among seasons. Our results suggest that the physiological condition of cyprids and seasonal variation in water temperature and salinity may jointly determine the metamorphic success of cyprids, and consequently, modulate the population dynamics of B. amphitrite in subtropical waters. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
