On temperature acclimation in an experimental population of Brachionus calyciflorus

  • G. A. Galkovskaya
Conference paper
Part of the Developments in Hydrobiology book series (DIHY, volume 14)


The influence of parental culture temperature regime on population parameters of offspring was investigated. Fecundity and net reproduction are influenced by the temperature conditions of the previous generation.
