All you want no know about Daphnias's behaviour in the field

The field season is now open for catching the little zooplankton animals!

Yongcui Sha and myself are collecting Daphnia magna in diverse aquatic systems in West Skåne. Combining biomolecular and nanoparticle tracking techniques, we want to investigate the intra- and inter- behavioral variability of Daphnia magna individuals collected from natural populations, as inferred from their population genetic structure and their swimming patterns under natural environmental stressors such as UV and predation.

Now we are looking forward to further understand how Daphniids are happily living outside of the lab!
