The swimming velocity of the water flea Daphnia magna is dependent on its body size. Therefore, environmental factors that influence growth also influence swimming velocity. This study examined whether exposure to increased salinity reduces swimming velocity only through its effect on body size or whether it also reduces size-specific swimming velocity. Initially, size-specific swimming velocity decreased in a salinity-dependent way. Thereafter, swimming velocities gradually returned to their… CONTINUE READING
