Morphology, reproduction, genetics, and mating behavior of small, tropical marine Brachionus strains (Rotifera)
Small, tropical marine Brachionus (SS strains) are distinguished by their lorica size and shape. Their relation to other marine Brachionus species, however, remains unknown. We examined morphometry,Expand

Studies on the formation and hatching of fertilized eggs of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis - II. Effects of temperature and chlorinity on resting egg formation in the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis.
The effect of temperature (15-30°C) and chlorinity (4-16‰) on resting egg production of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis was investigated. The rate of resting egg formation was found to increase atExpand
