The relationships between survivorship and fecundity of Diaptomus pakdus and algal food concentrations (Cryptomonas reflexa) were examined with a flow-through system that prevents the depletion and settling of algal cells. Egg production in adult females increased with increasing food concentration up to a maximum at 600 pg dry wt liter- *. Under starvation conditions, egg production stopped and survival decreased, whereas at 60 pg dry wt liter-l production was halted and survival was high… CONTINUE READING
