Phenotypic plasticity of Daphnia life history traits in response to predator kairomones: genetic variability and evolutionary potential



Phenotypic plasticity of Daphnia life history traits in response to predator kairomones: genetic variability and evolutionary potential



Hydrobiologia 360: 89-99



Cladoceran populations can respond to changing predation regimes by a phenotypical response as well as by shifts in genotype frequencies. In this study the phenotypic plasticity exhibited by life history traits of D. galeata was examined in response to the presence of predator kairomones, as well as the extent to which natural selection may act on these traits and their phenotypic plasticity.
