Examples

  • In general, the abundance and diversity of phytoplankton and invertebrates such as rotifers, copepods, and cladocerans increase with lake trophic status [59], which is often a function of latitudinal constraints on resources for productivity.

    Freshwater ecosystems in the Arctic

  • Many cladocerans show dramatic changes in their body shape over the year, so individuals in midsummer look very different from those of the same species in winter.

    Crustacea

  • The majority of zooplankton in freshwater is composed of cladocerans and copepods, and in the oceans copepods, who are the major consumers of phytoplankton.

    Crustacea

  • Most cladocerans reproduce both parthenogenetically and sexually, employing a breeding system termed cyclic parthenogenesis.

    Crustacea

  • Rooted aquatic plants actually have a repellent effect on cladocerans.

    Crustacea

  • The rostrum of cladocerans is the beak-like termination of the head.

    Crustacea

  • Most cladocerans are filter feeders which consume algae, protozoans, bacteria and organic detritus.

    Arthropoda

  • Most aquatic species either leave their eggs in their shed cuticle or glue the eggs to a submerged object, but others will carry the eggs around for a time, or deposit the eggs in the empty exoskeletons of cladocerans, ostracods, or insects.
