Feeding of Cyclops vicinus (Uljanin) (Copepoda: Cyclopoida) in Lake Balaton on the basis of gut content analyses


Consumption of planktonic algae by Cyclops vicinus living in Lake Balaton were studied in eighteen feeding experiments during 1980–1981. Gut contents of 284 adult C. vicinus were analysed in comparison with the natural phytoplankton assemblage. Rates of algal cells elimination were also studied and compared to controles which did not contain animals. C… (More)
