SummaryThe predatory copepod Mesocyclops edax preys effectively on the rotifers Asplanchna girodi and Polyarthra vulgaris but not on the rotifer Keratella cochlearis. It readily captures individuals of this latter species but usually releases them unharmed, being unable to remove the soft parts within their loricae. The predatory A. girodi regularly eats K. cochlearis but cannot catch P. vulgaris. When P. vulgaris is contacted by the corona of A. girodi, it immediately escapes by elevating its… Expand
