We carried out a laboratory study to evaluate the sensitivity of phototactic behavior of Daphnia magna to sublethal concentrations of pentachlorophenol (PCP) and copper. More specifically, we determined whether the sensitivity of a D. magna clone to those pollutants is influenced by food quality and the presence of fish kairomones. Test animals were fed either unicellular green algae (Scenedesmus acutus) or fresh baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and were cultured in the presence or… CONTINUE READING
