ABSTRACT Population parameters of Daphnia rosea were studied at various concentrations of Chlorella sp. (0.25, 0.75 and 3.0 mg C 1−1) at several temperatures (20, 25, 28, and 30 °C) in the laboratory. Although there were some differences in the degrees of the effects of the various temperature-food combinations, both food and temperature exerted influences on almost all of the main population parameters of D. rosea. At a water temperature of 28 °C, growth and reproduction were reduced, and at… 
Effect of Food and Temperature on the Growth and Development of Moina irrasa (Cladocera: Moinidae)
A significant relationship between body length and brood size appeared at high (40 mg/L) and medium (8 mg/ L) food concentrations, while there was no significant relationship at low food concentration except at 25°C.
Effect of Temperature and Food on Development and Growth of Daphnia similoides (Cladocera: Daphniidae) from Lake Donghu
Growth, reproduction, and life history parameters of Daphnia similoides from a subtropical eutrophic Chinese lake were measured at four temperatures and two food concentrations and body length of females was significantly correlated with offspring number per adult instar at all combinations of temperature and food.
Avaliação do efeito combinado de carbofurano e temperatura para Ceriodaphnia dubia
Since 2008, Brazil is the largest consumer of pesticides in the world. In 2011 insecticides were the most used group of pesticides. Carbofuran is a systemic, carbamate insecticide of broad spectrum
Long-term effects of tungsten carbide (WC) nanoparticles in pelagic and benthic aquatic ecosystems
The need for more long-term studies if the authors are to understand the effects of nanoparticles in natural systems is emphasized, as the production and usage of nanomaterials are increasing so are the concerns related to the release of the material into nature.
Field and experimental studies on the combined impacts of cyanobacterial blooms and small algae on crustacean zooplankton in a large, eutrophic, subtropical, Chinese lake
Both field and experimental results suggested that seasonal and long-term changes in the community structure of crustacean zooplankton in the lake were shaped by cyanobacterial blooms and biomass of the small algae, respectively, i.e., colonial and filamentous cyanobacteria contributed to the summer replacement of dominant crustaceans zoopLankton from large Daphnia spp.
A chronology of key events and figures leading up to and including the invention of the atomic bombs in World War Two are listed.


Effect of Temperature in the Laboratory Studies on Growth, Egg Development and First Parturition of Five Species of Cladocera
The results did not necessarily agree with the seasonal succession of the appearance of these species in the field, but the relationships between egg development time and temperature and between age at first parturition and temperature were expressed by an equation.
Diel vertical migration by zooplankton: Constant and fluctuating temperature effects on life history parameters of Daphnia1
There is no apparent thermal demographic advantage to vertical migration at either a high or low food level within the natural range experienced by D. purvulu, and maximum fitness is achieved by remaining in the warmest surface waters at all times.
The Midsummer Dynamics of Two Daphnia Species in Wintergreen Lake, Michigan
Differences in body size, ephippial production and habitat preferences between the 2 species are consistent with the hypothesis that planktivory is a strong selective force in their evolution.
Population dynamics and production of Daphnia hyalina Leydig and Daphnia cucullata Sars in Tjeukemeer
The population dynamics model ‘INSTAR’ was developed and used to integrate field data with laboratory data on development rates and length-weight relationships and found that Daphnia in Tjeukemeer shows continuous recruitment.
Population dynamics and production of Daphnia hyalina in a eutrophic reservoir
Summary The population dynamics and production of Daphnia hyaiina^ the dominant cladoceran i n Eglwys Nynydd, a shallow eutrophic reservoir in South Wales, were studied for 2 years against a
An analysis of seasonal dynamics of a mixed population of Daphnia, and the associated cladoceran community
Estimates of egg hatching rate at various temperatures demonstrate that these three cladocerans have different rate responses to temperature, and that seasonal succession of species is predictable from temperature alone.
Ingestion rate decrease as the stimulus for sexuality in populations of Moina macrocopa1
The stimulus for the switch from asexual to sexual reproduction in populations of Moina macrocopa americana is an abrupt decrease in ingestion rate caused by a rapid reduction in the amount of
Field Studies Concerning the Fecundity of Daphnia galeata, its Causes and Consequences
Field studies on a Daphnia galeata population in the mesotrophic man-made lake Saidenbach show that the fecundity of the animals depends on individual size, water temperature and the food supply, which are subsumed in the ingestion rate, which is of an integrative character.
Effect of temperature in laboratory studies on development and growth of Cladocera and Copepoda from Tjeukemeer, The Netherlands
The curvilinear logarithmic equation: In D = In a + b (In T)2 is fitted to the development times of eggs, combined naupliar instars and combined copepodite instars, as well as to the longevity of the adults.
Seasonal changes of Bosmina (Crustacea, Cladocera) in Frains Lake, Michigan: laboratory observations of phenotypic changes induced by inorganic factors
The kinds of cyclomorphotic changes in Bosmina suggest evolutionary adjustments to two principle types of predators: visual vertebrates and blindly grasping invertebrates.
