The dependency of the fecundity of Daphnia spec. on the food concentration was studied in Lake Constance. To eliminate the influence of temperature the number of eggs per adult female was plotted against the concentration of particulate carbon (<50 μm) at the estimated time of the production of the eggs. The curve obtained is similar to the results of laboratory investigations. The minimum food concentration for egg production is slightly above 0.2 mg C/1; at 0.7 mg C/1 the curve reaches a… CONTINUE READING
