We investigated the population dynamics of the rotifer Brachionus rotundiformis fed with the alga Isochrysis galbana at two food concentrations (3 × 104 and 40 × 104 cells ml−1) and four salinity levels (5, 10, 20, and 30) in the presence and absence of two copepod species, Pseudodiaptomus annandalei and Apocyclops royi and one cladoceran, Diaphanosoma aspinosum. Both the density and population growth rate of B. rotundiformis increased at higher food concentration and at salinity levels of 10… CONTINUE READING
