  author={{\"O}. O. Ertan and Z. G{\"u}çl{\"u} and {\"O}. Erdoğan and S. Savaş and Iskender G{\"u}lle},
In this study, the effects of the different densities of Chlorella vulgaris (0.05 x 10 6 , 0.1 x 10 6 , 0.2 x 10 6 , 0.4 x 10 6 , or 0.8 x 10 6 cells/ml) and Scenedesmus subspicatus (0.05 x 10 6 , 0.1 x 10 6 , 0.2 x 10 6 , or 0.4 x 10 6 cells/ml) on culture of the water flea, Bosmina longirostris, were investigated. The experiment was carried out in a photoperiod of 16 h light:8 h dark at 25±1°C. At the beginning of the experiment, one B. longirostris individual (<24 h old) was put into each… Expand

Figures from this paper

Growth and development of three species of the zooplankton (Brachionus Calyciflorus, Moina micrura and Thermocyclops sp.) breeding on poultry dropping in mixed condition in tanks
In perspectives of culture of life food for larviculture, it result of this experiment that the harvest of zooplankton may be realized 6-12 th day when the zoopLankton production reached its high level; and rotifers and cladocerans were abundant. Expand
Life Table Responses of Moina micrura Fed with Different Food Concentrations
The results of this study indicate that food concentrations had effects on the number of offspring per brood and the total number of daughters per female of M. micrura. Expand
Toleration of Moina sp. towards Salinity and Food Types as the Prominent Factors in Determining Moina sp. Abundance: A Review
This review focuses on the potential of producing a salt tolerate zooplankton species of Moina sp. Expand


The effect of different algal densities of Scenedesmus acuminatus on the population growth of Moina micrura Kurz (Crustacea: Anomopoda, Moinidae)
The peak production density of approximately 11 000 Moina per litre, is interesting from a mass production point of view and indicates that S. acuminatus is a satisfactory micro-alga food for M. micrura, and growth was inhibited at higher algal densities. Expand
Population growth of some genera of cladocerans (Cladocera) in relation to algal food (Chlorella vulgaris) levels
It became evident that for up to 1300 μm body size, the threshold food level increased with increasing body size; however, beyond this, thereshold level decreased supporting earlier observations on rotifers and large cladocerans. Expand
Growth of Moina macrocopa (Straus 1820) (Crustacea, Cladocera): influence of trophic conditions, population density and temperature
The growth of a strain of Moina macrocopa isolated from an experimental stabilization pond in Marrakesh, was examined at seven concentrations of algae and population density influenced longevity and survival but had no effect on growth. Expand
Experimental studies on competition between Bosmina longirostris and Bosmina fatalis
In Lake Kasumigaura, the decomposition of abundant Microcystis seemed to raise the food level, favouring B. fatalis over B. longirostris. Expand
Competition between Moina macrocopa and Ceriodaphnia dubia: a Life Table Demography Study
The negative effect of competition was evident for both the cladoceran species, not in their reproductive rates, but in their generation times, and thus population growth rates, in relation to different algal food levels. Expand
Population growth of zooplankton (Rotifers and Cladocerans) fed Chlorella vulgaris and Scenedesmus acutus in different proportions
The study did not support the view that Scenedesmus is consistently superior to Chlorella as a basic diet to the tested species of zooplankton, and showed that both rotifer species grew well on either type of algae. Expand
Lifetable demography of four cladoceran species in relation to algal food (Chlorella vulgaris) density
This work studied the life table demography of four cladoceran species in relation to three algal food concentrations and concluded that among the algal concentrations used here, 0.5 × 106 – 1.5× 106 was beneficial not only to the planktonic species but also to the littoral P. aduncus and S. vetulus while 4.

The dynamics of Ceriodaphnia pulchella (Cladocera) in laboratory
Food supply seems to be the main factor affecting C. pulchella dynamics under controlled conditions, and the availability of food seems to affect negatively reproduction in favour of growth. Expand
Combined effects of algal (Chlorella vulgaris) density and ammonia concentration on the population dynamics of Ceriodaphnia dubia and Moina macrocopa (Cladocera).
It was found that in controls of M. macrocopa an increase in the availability of Chlorella from 0.5 to 1.5 x 10(6) cells mL(-1) of algal food led to a corresponding decrease in peak population densities of the tested cladocerans. Expand
Effect of temperature on development and growth of the raptorial cladoceran Leptodora kindtii under laboratory conditions
Improved methods to estimate growth and instar durations of Leptodora kindtii were employed, and seven juvenile instar stages before the first adult instar stage was reached were observed. Expand
