Filamentous cyanobacteria disturb food collection in Daphnia by mechanical interference with the filtering apparatus by the long trichomes. The intensity of this interference depends on the water temperature and the Daphnia body size. However, Daphnia are capable of breaking down the filaments, therefore improving the palatability of the cyanobacteria. The(More)
Fatty acids contribute to the nutritional quality of the phytoplankton and, thus, play an important role in Daphnia nutrition. One of the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs)––eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)––has been shown to predict carbon transfer between primary producers and consumers in lakes, suggesting that EPA limitation of Daphnia in nature is(More)
