Near-coronal fluid flow patterns and food cell manipulation in the rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus

Abstract

Brachionus calyciflorus is able to differentially capture or deflect potential food cells depending on the overall density (numbers µl−1) and size of suspended particles the rotifer encounters while feeding. This has been shown to correlate with behavioral regulation of pseudotrochal structures, and primarily by large medial tufts of compound cilia (cirri… (More)
