Growth and feeding rates in Stentor coeruleus fed on Tetrahymena are described in relation to prey concentrations ranging from 10:1–50:1 at 15°C and 20°C. Feeding rate was independent of temperature, but governed by prey concentration. Stentor decreased in size where less than 1,000 μJ were consumed in 24 hrs. A maximum level of growth was attained at 15°C… CONTINUE READING
