In the hypolimnion, where C. acidophila occurs below the compensation point for purely autotrophic growth, the mixotrophic mode of nutrition prevails. Therefore, the mode of carbon acquisition shifts from autotrophy through photosynthesis in the upper water layers to heterotrophy through the uptake of dissolved organic carbon in the deeper water layers.

For determination of the carbon content of the algae, algal suspensions were filtered on precombusted Whatman filters (GF/F; Whatman International Ltd, Maidstone, UK) and carbon was measured with a HighTOC (Elementar Analyse System GmbH, Hanau, Germany). 1 Temporal changes in abundances of microflagellates (autotrophic and heterotrophic) and rotifers (Synchaeta species 1, Syn, sp. This resulted in an opposite pattern compared with autotrophic (HL) conditions and was in line with previous results demonstrating that mixotrophic food is of lesser quality for Elosa (Weithoff and Wacker, 2007); although, in that study, Elosa was more strongly affected by mixotrophic C. acidophila. 24: 879–883.

Quekett Microscopical Club ser. Rotifers, whose downstream decrease, may be attributed to excavation works and was accentuated by invertebrate prédation, were one of the causes of the increase of green algae at the lower site. 22: 311–317. It has been argued that heterotrophic nitrification involves enzyme systems that are quite different from those of the autotrophs (Wehrfritz et al., 1993) and that heterotrophic nitrification cannot serve as an energy generating mechanism (Castignetti, 1990), as the autotrophic process does. Aust. Deep chlorophyll maxima are a common characteristic of meso-eutrophic lakes, and they develop typically at a depth around or below the compensation point for autotrophic growth (Adler et al., 2000; Gervais et al., 2003). You can reading Heterotrophic microalgae as an inexpensive feed for rotifers online or load. Under low light conditions, total rotifer abundances were lower than under high light. Laboratory experiments revealed that only C. acidophila is a suitable food source for the dominating rotifer species E. worallii and Cephalodella sp. & J. D. Jack, 1993. J. Plankton Res. Zooplankton induced changes in dissolved free amino acids and in production rates of freshwater bacteria. Since at least some rotifers are able to persist with the described reduction in food quality, such species may also have a competitive advantage over cladocera that have a higher demand for long-chained PUFAs (Von Elert, 2002; Wacker and Martin-Creuzburg, 2007; Martin-Creuzburg et al., 2009). This confirms that Elosa has low competitive abilities under heterotrophic food conditions. Unfortunately, in studies on the DCM, the vertical distribution of micro-zooplankton is often not recorded.

Data were analysed by one-way ANOVA and t-test with SPSS 15.0 (details in Tables I and II).

Prog. Although our results were derived from an extreme habitat, they might be transferable to circum-neutral lakes as well. Prog. Thus, the exploitation by zooplankton of this quantitatively rich resource might be hampered by the resource quality. Pol.

A disadvantage of this scenario is that populations might exhibit a highly dynamic behaviour and that random extinction might occur (Rosenzweig, 1971; Lande, 1993).

The growth rate r of the rotifers was calculated for the period of exponential growth, considering the dilution rate, from day 6 to 12 (exceptions: Cephalodella with autotrophic HL food day 8–14; Cephalodella with mixotrophic LL food day 0–8), according to r = ln(nt1/nt0)/(t1 − t0), where n is the number of animals per millilitre and t1 and t0 is the time at the end and beginning of the time interval, respectively.

Rotifers have bilateral symmetry and a variety of different shapes. Since Elosa has a lower food threshold than Cephalodella (Weithoff, 2007), the observed low competitive ability is not due to low food quantity and can only be explained by food quality. Recently, Weithoff and Wacker (Weithoff and Wacker, 2007) showed that the mode of carbon acquisition differentially determined the food quality for the two rotifers; in particular, Cephalodella sp.
