  • Dry weights of individual Daphnia galeata and D. hyalina, which coexist in Lake Con- stance, were determined weekly during a two year investigation. From each sample and each species a length — weight relationship (LWR) was calculated resulting in 54 (65) regression equations based on N = 2466 (3032) in D. galeata (D. hyalina). The constants (Ln(A)) and (B) of the LWRs showed a marked seasonal variability, ranging from Ln(A) = 1.0784 - 2.4740(1.0152 - 2.3860) and B = 2.14 — 4.20(2.11 - 4.15… CONTINUE READING
