Two experiments were run, to demonstrate how Daphnia life history changes in the response to fish kairomone, depending on at which ontogenetic stage the simulated presence of fish appears or disappears. Exposures of Daphnia, starting from different ontogenetic stages, to the fish kairomone showed that the time period between the initiation of phenotypic changes induced by the presence of fish and their adaptive expression in Daphnia varies from one instar (2-3 days) in the case of size at first… CONTINUE READING
