  1. pmc Strong influences of larval diet history on subsequent post-settlement growth in the freshwater mollusc Dreissena polymorpha
    Alexander Wacker
    Limnological Institute, University of Konstanz, 78434 Konstanz, Germany
    Proc Biol Sci 269:2113-9. 2002
    ..Hence, low food quantity or low food quality during the larval stage of D. polymorpha, lead to irreversible effects for post-metamorphic animals and are related to inferior competitive abilities...
  2. ncbi Food quality controls reproduction of the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha)
    Alexander Wacker
    Limnological Institute, University of Konstanz, 78457, Konstanz, Germany
    Oecologia 135:332-8. 2003
    ..The low biochemical quality of these blooms may affect at least the later period of gametogenesis of D. polymorpha, which reproduces from June to August...
  3. pmc Colimitation of a freshwater herbivore by sterols and polyunsaturated fatty acids
    Dominik Martin-Creuzburg
    Limnological Institute, University of Constance, Mainaustrasse 252, 78464 Konstanz, Germany
    Proc Biol Sci 276:1805-14. 2009
    ..Hence, the concept of colimitation has to be incorporated into models assessing nutrient-limited growth kinetics of herbivores to accurately predict demographic changes and population dynamics...
  4. doi Dietary lipid quality affects temperature-mediated reaction norms of a freshwater key herbivore
    Dominik Martin-Creuzburg
    Limnological Institute, University of Constance, Mainaustrasse 252, 78464, Constance, Germany
    Oecologia 168:901-12. 2012
    ..In conclusion, essential dietary lipids significantly affect temperature-mediated reaction norms of ectotherms and thus temperature-mediated plasticity in life history traits is subject to strong food quality constraints...
  5. ncbi Life history consequences of sterol availability in the aquatic keystone species Daphnia
    Dominik Martin-Creuzburg
    Limnological Institute, University of Constance, Mainaustrasse 252, 78464, Konstanz, Germany
    Oecologia 144:362-72. 2005
    ..The results suggest a strong impact of dietary sterols on life history traits and therefore, population dynamics of the keystone species Daphnia...
  6. doi Thresholds for sterol-limited growth of Daphnia magna: a comparative approach using 10 different sterols
    Dominik Martin-Creuzburg
    Limnological Institute, University of Konstanz, Mainaustrasse 252, 78464, Konstanz, Germany
    J Chem Ecol 40:1039-50. 2014
    ..We infer that the dietary sterol composition has to be considered in zooplankton nutritional ecology to accurately assess potential sterol limitations under field conditions...
