Abstract1.)The daily ration required to maintain a population growth rate, rm, of zero (threshold ration) increased with increasing Asplanchna body mass. This relationship is described by the equation T=0.342 W0.797 where T=threshold ration (μg day-1 dry mass) and W=Asplanchna body mass (μg adult-1 dry mass).2.)The threshold ration of large campanulate morphs of A. silvestrii was 3.7 times greater than that of conspecific saccate morphs suggesting that campanulates may be restricted to food… Expand
