Population interaction: A synchronizer for the persistent rhythmicity of Chaoborus larvae


Fifty chaoborid larvae (Diptera: Chaoboridae) were maintained singly in 200-ml. experimental chambers with lake water and sediments. The larvae, entrained in a reversed light-dark cycle-L D 12: 12 (21–09), were monitored at two-hour intervals to observe whether or not the larvae were in the planktonic state. Results indicated that under constant conditions… (More)
