We examined the effects of UV radiation (UVR) on metabolic rates of the freshwater cladoceran Daphnia catawba. We exposed D. catawba to UVB for 12 h in a lamp phototron at levels of 2.08 and 4.16 kJ m(-2) both with and without concomitant exposure to UVA and visible photorepair radiation (PRR). We also included a group that received PRR only and a dark control group. Respiration rates were measured for 6 h following exposure. Respiration rates increased by 31.8% relative to the dark control at… CONTINUE READING
