TLDR
The pH was shown to exert a major influence on egg viability and growth rate (rm and r) for each Brachionus species, and the age-specific survivorship curves within a species were not significantly different at pH 6–10.
Effects of dietary substitution of soya bean meal for fish meal on consumption, growth, and metabolism of juvenile giant freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii
TLDR
SBM, without supplementation of amino acids or other additives, was not suitable as a major protein source in freshwater-prawn diets, while specific growth rate and conversion efficiency decreased with increasing dietary SBM.
Effects of temperature on food consumption, growth and oxygen consumption of freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii (de Man 1879) postlarvae
TLDR
The results showed that the animal's initial body weight had a close linear relationship with food consumption and growth, and growth increased significantly with increased temperature and temperature showed no effect on growth efficiency.
Adaptive significance of temperature-induced egg size plasticity in a planktonic rotifer, Brachionus calyciflorus
TLDR
Findings support the view that temperature-induced egg size plasticity has adaptive significance in rotifers.
Rapid temporal succession identified by COI of the rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus Pallas in Xihai Pond, Beijing, China, in relation to ecological traits
TLDR
Cl clone succession and genetic variation of the rotifer Brachionus colyciflorus, in Xihai Pond, Beijing, China, is investigated using partial sequence of the COI gene and data derived from life-table demography indicated that the four haplotypes had different reactions to relevant ecological parameters.
Effects of stocking density on growth and non‐specific immune responses in juvenile soft‐shelled turtle, Pelodiscus sinensis
TLDR
A possible energy-based trade-off between growth and constitutive immunity may exist in soft-shelled turtles, indicating a pattern of immunoenhancement.
