Ostracods have long been studied by scientists because their fossil remnants provide a valuable tool for the reconstruction of past environmental changes, including climate change and anthropogenic eutrophication. Relatively little is known about the physiology, behaviour and reproductive ecology of recent forms. We argue that filling this gap in knowledge requires stable cultures that can be used in laboratory studies. Here we provide quantitative information on the food preference of the… CONTINUE READING
