  • Daily measurements of mass and phosphorus (P) were made for Daphnia magna feeding on a high concentration (1 mg C l−1) of P-sufficient (molar C:P = 70–80, `P+') or P-deficient (C:P = 1000, `P−') green algae (Scenedesmus obliquus or Ankistrodesmus falcatus). Animals feeding on P+ algae for 12 d showed a sharp decline in growth during the last juvenile instar (mean ± SE from 0.57 ± 0.02 to 0.25 ± 0.03 d−1) and a modest decline in P-content at the first adult instar (from 1.55 ± 0.01 to 1.46 ± 0… CONTINUE READING
