Food limitation and body size in the life cycles of planktonic rotifers and cladocerans

  title={Food limitation and body size in the life cycles of planktonic rotifers and cladocerans},

This review considers what is known about the effects of food limitation upon the life cycle characteristics of rotifers and planktonic cladocerans. The characteristics considered in rotifers are the size of eggs, juveniles and adults and the durations of the juvenile phase and period of egg production. In cladocerans, the life history features dealt with are their length-weight relationships, the body size, instar stage, age and fecundity of the primiparous female and their fecundity-adult… CONTINUE READING
