We investigated whether trophic repackaging of autotrophic picoplankton by phagotrophic protists is associated with an improvement in food quality for the metazooplankton Daphnia magna (i.e., whether trophic upgrading occurs in this system). The nutritional value of the autotrophic species Microcystis aeruginosa PCC7806, Synechococcus sp. strain BO8809, Synechococcus elongatus SAG 89.79, and Choricystis minor KR1988/ 8, and of the heterotrophic nanoflagellate Paraphysomonas sp. grown on these… CONTINUE READING
