Life history and fatty acid composition of the marine rotifer

A strain of the marine rotifer Synchaeta cecdia valentina, isolated from 'El Hondo de Elche', a Spanish Mediterranean coastal lagoon, was cultured in the laboratory in 20 rnl test tubes, at 20°C and

Changes in the Population Structure of the Lineage ‘Nevada’ Belonging to the Brachionus plicatilis Species Complex, Batch-Cultured Under Different Feeding Regimes

Initial rotifer density influenced the abundance of females with multiple eggs, but resulted in slight variations in growth rate and population structure, leading to significant differences in the growth rate.

The biochemical composition and calorific content of a rotifer and its algal food: comparison of a two stage chemostat and batch culture

B batch-grown rotifers were more biochemically nutritious than chemostat-grown animals in their steady-state phase and at the end of the exponential phase of growth, when maximum densities had been achieved.

Combined effects of temperature and algal density on the life history characteristics in Brachionus angularis and Keratella Valga

The effects of temperature and food concentration on the developmental durations, egg ratio, and life-table demography in Brachionus angularis and Keratella valga suggested that B. angularis might be more suitable to mass culture in aquaculture than K. valga.

The effects of food level on the life history variables of the two closely related rotifer species Keratella tropica and Keratella valga

Both rotifer species had the same response to increasing food levels as regards duration of reproductive and post-reproductive periods, average lifespan, life expectancy at hatching, generation time, net reproductive rate and intrinsic rate of population increase, but differed in their duration of pre-re productive period.

Impact of several harmful algal bloom (HAB) causing species, on life history characteristics of rotifer Brachionus plicatilis Müller

Exposure to dinoflagellates at densities equivalent to those measured in the field resulted in a reduction in all the life history parameters measured, which suggests that dinof lagellate HABs may suppress microzooplankton, resulting in an increase in algal numbers.

Effects of Fenvalerate and TBTC (EDCs) on life history characteristics of freshwater rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus

The result showed that Fenvalerate and TBTC had significant effects on the durations of different development stages of B. calyciflorus and the characterristics of its population growth.

Interactions between red tide microalgae and herbivorous zooplankton: effects of two bloom-forming species on the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis (O.F. Muller)

Investigation of interspecific interactions between the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis and two harmful algal bloom (HAB) species using single and mixed culture methods shows that A. tamarense could partly counteract the effect of H. akashiwo in limiting the rate of population increase of rotifer.
