Studies of planktonic organisms have shown that various life-history traits, and consequently population growth rate, can be affected by chemical cues released by high densities of conspecifics. In this work we test for potential delays in population responses to conspecific cues in the cladoceran Daphnia ambigua through: (i) evaluating the influence of maternal environment on life-history traits of their daughters, and (ii) identifying the developmental stages that need to be exposed to… CONTINUE READING
