Daphnia populations often show rapid microevolutionary adaptation to environmental changes. Here, we investigated the possibility that microevolution of Daphnia populations could be driven by natural sestonic Protease Inhibition (PI). We hypothesized that PI changes seasonally, which might lead to concomitant changes in tolerance to PI in a co-occurring(More)
Computer systems are becoming more and more ubiquitous. Many of to-day's application areas do not fit for monolithic approaches, but for distributed intelligent systems. The multi-agent paradigm is an appropriate and therefore popular approach for building these systems. To interpret messages and provided services the agents need a common ontology.(More)
It is known that cyanobacteria negatively affect herbivores due to their production of toxins such as protease inhibitors. In the present study we investigated potential interspecific differences between two major herbivores, Daphnia magna and Daphnia pulex, in terms of their tolerance to cyanobacteria with protease inhibitors. Seven clones each of D. magna(More)
