Diatoms are unicellular plants broadly present in freshwater and marine ecosystems, where they play a primary role in sustaining the marine food chain. In the last 10 years, there has been accumulating evidence that diatoms may have deleterious effects on the hatching success of zooplankton crustaceans such as copepods, thus affecting dynamics of planktonic populations and limiting secondary production. At the molecular level, failure to hatch is ascribed to the presence of a family of… CONTINUE READING
