In shallow subarctic ponds Daphnia and their algal food are often exposed to solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR). It was previously demonstrated that direct exposure of Daphnia to UVR may result in sublethal damage to Daphnia‘s intestinal system. This led to the hypothesis that, as consequences of such exposures, Daphnia may be experiencing a situation similar to starvation. We examined, in controlled experiments, the indirect effect of UVR-treated food algae on Daphnia pulex which, themselves… CONTINUE READING
