Asplanchna releases into its environment a filterable factor which induces eggs of Keratella slacki to develop into individuals with slightly larger (x 15%) bodies, considerably longer (a 30%) anterior spines, much longer (= 130%) right posterior spines, and sometimes short, left posterior spines not otherwise present. The Asplanchna-induced morph is much less susceptible to Asplanchna predation than the noninduced morph, its long spines making it about two times less likely to be captured… Expand
