Climate warming and stratospheric ozone depletion increase temperature and ultraviolet (UV) in midto highlatitude ecosystems; however, little is known about the interactive effects of temperature and UV on organisms. We exposed Daphnia catawba, Leptodiaptomus minutus, and Asplanchna girodi to UV-B at four different temperatures: 10, 15, 20, and 258C. Elevated temperatures increased UV tolerance in D. catawba and L. minutus, species that depend heavily on photoenzymatic repair (PER), but… CONTINUE READING
