Abstract

Ingestion and assimilation rates on a strain of bacteria isolated from a reservoir and on a green alga. Chlamydomonas reinhardi, were examined for Daphnia galeata, Diaphanosoma brachyurum, Bosmina longirostris and Bosminopsis deitersi, D. galeata and D. brachyurum ingested the bacteria as well as the algae but bacterial ingestion rates of B. longirostris and B. deitersi were much lower than the algal ingestion rate. -from Authors
