Fertilized resting eggs of Australian Brachionus quadridentatus hatched 2–3 days after hydration into females with or, more frequently, without posterior lateral spines. These females then produced clones with short-spined or long-spined phenotypes. Asplanchna girodi induced females from two short-spined clones and one long-spined clone to produce daughters with significantly longer posterior lateral spines. In all clones, there were significant differences in spine development among offspring… Expand
