To assess the effect of three heterotrophic bacteria (Flavobacterium sp., Pseudomonas sp. and Escherichia coli) on survival, growth and egg production of juvenile Daphnia magna during six-day growth experiments, five ratios of bacteria–Scenedesmus obliquus mixtures were fed. Potential growth-limiting effects mediated by essential biochemicals were assessed upon supplementation of pure bacterial diets with a sterol (cholesterol) or a polyunsaturated fatty acid (EPA). Pure bacterial diets always had detrimental effects on Daphnia. However, cholesterol Supplementation of Flavobacterium sp. enhanced growth rates of Daphnia. Diets containing Pseudomonas impaired Daphnia growth even at low dietary proportions (20%), indicating their toxicity. In contrast, Daphnia grew at relative high dietary proportions of Flavobacterium sp. and E. coli (80–50%). In fact, diets containing small proportions of these heterotrophic bacteria (Flavobacterium B50%, E. coli 20%) even significantly increased Daphnia growth rates compared to pure algal diets, indicating a nutritional upgrading by these bacteria. Our results suggest that the relative contribution of bacteria and Phytoplankton to total dietary carbon as well as their phylogenetic composition strongly influence Daphnia fitness and potentially other filter-feeding zooplankton under field conditions.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2012</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2013-07-17T11:37:37Z</dc:date> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
