DAPHNIA MAGNA – ‘Water Fleas’

Daphnia magna was chosen to determine
the critical concentrations of fluorides
because it is sensitive to pollutants,
it has a short life cycle, and is an
important fish food organism.

.

Daphnia’s transparency allows for the
observations of its
inner anatomical
structures with the microscope. 

.

Notice the immature young
moving in the brood pouch.

(There are numerous other posts
on Daphnia and fluorides.)
