Oecologia 138:333-40. 2004..Also, food quality affected growth and reproduction even at low food levels for both D. pulicaria and D. galeata. Our results indicate that some species of zooplankton can benefit from stoichiometric heterogeneity on diet...
- Genotype x environment interactions, stoichiometric food quality effects, and clonal coexistence in Daphnia pulexLawrence J Weider
Department of Zoology and Biological Station, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK 73019, USA
Oecologia 143:537-47. 2005..These results indicate that food (nutrient) quality effects (hitherto an often overlooked factor) may play a role in microevolutionary (genotypic) responses to changing stoichiometric conditions in natural populations...
