Abstract The objective of our study was to investigate sexual reproduction of Daphnia magna associated with mating behaviors and hatching rates, according to different algal food sources. Since a diatom is known to contain more abundant long‐chain poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), we hypothesized that the diatom‐consuming D. magna would exhibit more successful reproduction rates. Upon the hypothesis, we designed three experiments using two algal species, a green alga (Chlorella vulgaris…

Adequacy of planctomycetes as supplementary food source for Daphnia magna
The nutritional quality of daphnids diet can influence their growth, reproduction and survival. In aquatic ecosystems, bacteria can contribute significantly to Daphnia diet by supporting, for
OPTIMAL RATIO OF MALE AND SEXUAL FEMALE IN THE MATING OF MOINA MACROCOPA (CRUSTACEA, MONIDAE)
TLDR
The results of this study indicated that mating M. macrocopa using 70-hour old sexual females resulted in the highest ephippia production.
Adequacy of bacteria as supplementary food source for Daphnia magna
TLDR
Evaluating the potential of three different bacteria as an alternative or as a supplementary food source for Daphnia magna confirmed that the standard food supplemented with bacteria showed a better development and performance of D. magna in laboratorial cultures.
QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF EPHIPIA MOINA MACROCOPA RESULTING FROM MATING USING TILAPIA FISH FECES SUSPENSION FEED
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that, the concentration of suspension of tilapia feces does not affect the production and hatching rate of ephipia M. macrocopa.
Influence of food availability on mate-guarding behaviour of ladybirds
TLDR
Results indicate that pre- and post-copulatory behaviour of ladybird is plastic in nature in response to food resource fluctuations.
Effects of pollution on dormant-stage banks of cladocerans and rotifers in a large tropical reservoir
TLDR
The study indicates that the wastewater release in the reservoir can affect the production of dormant stages by cladocerans and rotifers, and that environmental pollution resulting from wastewater release and the cultivation of tilapia in cages is the most likely factor contributing to the higher values of egg density at this location.
The population growth and the nutritional status of Moina macrocopa feed with rice bran and cassava bran suspensions
TLDR
The purpose of this study determined how to use effectively the rice bran and cassava bran Manihot utilisima suspension on Moina, based on population, neonates production, adult percentage, biomass, metabolisme and nutritional state.
Tissue-specific Isotopic Incorporation Turnover Rates and Trophic Discrimination Factors in the Freshwater Shrimp Macrobrachium borellii (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae).
TLDR
The results support ranges of traditional trophic discrimination factor values observed in muscles samples of different taxa, but provide evidence that these traditionally used values may vary in other tissues, as it is found that in the hepatopancreas ∆15N is around 1.7‰.

Population Growth of the Cladoceran, Daphnia magna: A Quantitative Analysis of the Effects of Different Algal Food
TLDR
Stable isotope analysis revealed significant assimilation of diatom-derived materials that was important for the growth of D. magna populations and individuals and is expected to help to further precisely examine the contribution of prey to predators or grazers in controlled experiments.
Sexual reproduction of Daphnia pulex in a temporary habitat
  • D. Innes
  • Environmental Science, Biology

  • 1997
TLDR
For D. pulex populations in a temporary environment, there appears to be an increased emphasis on sexual reproduction and a decreased influence of the environment on sex determination, compared to Daphnia populations in more permanent habitats.
Food quality triggers the reproductive mode in the cyclical parthenogen Daphnia (Cladocera)
TLDR
The results suggest that protein compounds should be added to the list of diet constituents potentially limiting or influencing Daphnia reproduction and show that the role of food quality goes far beyond the up to now documented effects ofFood quality on somatic growth and trophic transfer efficiency of herbivores: due to its effects on sexual reproduction and the production of resting eggs, food quality might influence genetic diversity and long-term persistence of Daphnian in lakes.
Single dietary amino acids control resting egg production and affect population growth of a key freshwater herbivore
TLDR
It is suggested that the availability of single dietary amino acids potentially affects the seasonal dynamics and long-term persistence of Daphnia populations in the field, which may have consequences for the efficiency of carbon transfer and thus the trophic structure of freshwater food webs.
Biochemical limitation of resting egg production in Daphnia
TLDR
The result that dormancy is a ubiquitous phenomenon among invertebrates can be severely limited by the availability of essential biochemicals may hold for a variety of taxa.
Sexual reproduction of Daphnia in a deep temperate reservoir: the phenology and genetics of male formation
TLDR
The spatio-temporal dynamics of male production in a spring population of Daphnia galeata in the reservoir suggest that males were not subjected to any significant selective forces till maturity and the male- producing females confer a long-term fitness advantage over female-producing females.
The effects of temperature and photoperiod on life history parameters of Daphnia magna (Crustacea: Cladocera)
SUMMARY. 1. The life history responses of two common and three rare Daphnia magna clones to constant conditions of temperature and photoperiod were investigated, and intraspecific variation in the
Food Quality Controls Sexual Selection in Mormon Crickets by Altering Male Mating Investment
TLDR
The conclusion from this study is that increased sexual selection on females due to such a change in diet is a result of an increase in the relative importance of male parental investment.
Sexual reproduction in Daphnia magna requires three stimuli
TLDR
The factors inducing sexual eggs, as well as the offspring sex ratio preceding sexual egg formation, were investigated in a cyclic parthenogen, Daphnia magna (Crustacea, Cladocera), making it possible to separate the effects of two density-dependent factors: food limitation and a chemically mediated cue.
