Seasonal changes in individual clearance rates, selective feeding behavior, and population grazing rates of Keratella cochlearis, Polyarthra vulgaris, Polyarthra dolichoptera, and Bosmina longirostris were investigated in a eutrophic lake using five tracer foods (Aerobacter, Rhodotorula, Chlorella, Chlamydomonas, and Euglena) and by in situ radioisotope techniques. Clearance rates ranged from <O.OOZ to 13 ~1. ind-1 * h- L depending on type of cell and water temperature. Keratella and Bosmina… Expand
