A Patagonian strain of Keratella tropica exhibits extensive non-genetic variation in spine development and body size. This study experimentally investigates the effect of temperature (10, 15, 20, and 25°C), both alone and with Daphnia and Asplanchna kairomones, on spine and lorica length. Temperature by itself had a major effect on right and left posterior spines and the lorica; these increased in length as temperature decreased, most notably from 20 to 15°C. At these two temperatures and a… Expand
