A general method for establishing cultures of planktonic rotifers from natural waters is described. Algal isolates are tested for their suitability as food for rotifers collected from the same source and season. Rotifer clones displaying the highest reproductive rates under the given culture conditions are selected for the final culture system. This procedure yielded indefinite cultures for the eulimnetic species, Asplanchna priodonta, A. herricki, Polyarthra major, and Synchaeta pectinata, and… Expand
