... and fluid mechanics to study the capturing mechanisms of crude oil droplets and the filtering appendage's wettability by two species of barnacles ( Balanus glandula and Balanus crenatus ) and of the freshwater cladoceran Daphnia magna . Our results show that barnacle appendages behave as paddles and capture...

... freshwater zooplankton crustacean Daphnia magna . We measured respiration rates in a ramp-up experiment over a range of assay temperatures (5–37°C) in eight genotypes of D . magna representing a range of previously reported acute heat tolerances and, at a narrower range of temperatures (10–35°C), in D...

... with age structure in populations, has widespread implications for disease spread. Thus, we sought to determine the susceptibility of hosts of different ages in an experimental invertebrate host–pathogen system. In a series of experiments, we show that the ability of Daphnia magna to resist its natural...

... producers and herbivores is to a large extent represented by Daphnia and cyanobacteria. The occurrence of cyanobacterial blooms in lakes and ponds has, at least partly, been attributed to cyanotoxins, which negatively affect the major grazer of planktonic cyanobacteria, i.e. Daphnia . Among...

... oxidative stress. Toxic cyanobacteria affect the growth, survival and reproduction of zooplankton, particularly those from the genus Daphnia , which have a central position in pelagic food webs. However, one possibility to ameliorate effects is to biotransform MC via glutathione S transferase (GST...

...Eric von Elert; Anja Zitt; Anke Schwarzenberger SUMMARY Daphnia has been shown to acquire tolerance to cyanobacterial toxins within an animals' lifetime and to transfer this tolerance to the next generation. Here we used a strain of the cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa , which contained two...

...S. Moenickes; O. Richter; R. Pirow SUMMARY The planktonic crustacean Daphnia magna synthesizes haemoglobin (Hb) macromolecules of variant subunit composition and oxygen affinity. This is one of the strategies by which the animals cope with variations in environmental conditions such as ambient...

The present study made use of the oxygen-sensitive phosphorescence probe Oxyphor R2 to analyze the internal oxygen pathway in the transparent microcrustacean Daphnia magna . Oxyphor R2 was injected into the circulatory system and the distribution of oxygen partial...

Buchen SUMMARY The dual function of appendage movement (food acquisition, ventilation)proved to be the key to explaining the peculiar oxyregulatory repertoire of the planktonic filter feeder Daphnia magna . Short-term hypoxic exposure experiments with normoxia-acclimated animals under...
