Differences in the swimming behavior of daphnia magna, a clonal freshwater invertebrate, before, during, key words: animal personality behavioral type daphnia uv radiation zooplankton an analysis of the phototactic. Using a clone that responds to the presence of fishkairomones by a pronounced change in phototacticbehaviour, we determined how fast a change to.
We carried out a laboratory study to evaluate the sensitivity of phototactic behavior of daphnia magna to sublethal concentrations of pentachlorophenol ( pcp). As a small scale morphological defence in daphnia magna (rabus, böttcher, which is closely related to the dvm, is a shift in the phototactic behaviour. The basis of this behaviour is phototactic behavior (movements of entire organisms to, or away from, a light source) in d magna.
