Allocation of essential lipids in Daphnia magna during exposure to poor food quality

  title={Allocation of essential lipids in Daphnia magna during exposure to poor food quality},
  author={Alexander Wacker and Dominik Martin-Creuzburg},
1. In nature, food conditions change temporally and force consumers into trade-offs during resource allocation. In particular, under poor food conditions, for example during cyanobacterial blooms, herbivores have to optimize their resource allocation to maximize fitness, and face two decisions: (i) an individual might attempt to allocate acquired essential resources to reproductive tissues or use them for its own maintenance; and (ii) an individual might decide to optimize the chemical quality… CONTINUE READING
