Escape of protists in predator-generated feeding currents

  title={Escape of protists in predator-generated feeding currents},
  author={Hans Henrik Jakobsen},
The ciliate Strobilidium sp. and 2 flagellates, Chrysochromulina simplex and Gymnodinium sp., were exposed to predator-generated feeding currents, and their escape responses were quantified using 2and 3-dimensional video techniques. All 3 studied organisms responded by escaping at a defined distance to their predators. A critical threshold fluid deformation rate of escape of 3.6 s–1 was estimated in a quantifiable siphon suction flow field for the ciliate Strobilidium sp. Using previous… CONTINUE READING
