This temporal change between reproductive strategies allows for (1) rapid population growth via subitaneously developing eggs when environmental conditions are appropriate and (2) the maintenance of genetic diversity via sexual reproduction and the production of resting eggs when environmental conditions deteriorate. We show here that dietary amino acids are involved in triggering the switch between reproductive modes in Daphnia pulex. Supplementation experiments demonstrate that specific dietary amino acids, in particular arginine and histidine, avert crowding-induced resting egg production, enhance subitaneous reproduction by increasing algal food quality and, as a combined effect of both processes, increase population growth rates. These findings suggest that the availability of single dietary amino acids potentially affects the seasonal dynamics and long-term persistence of Daphnia populations in the field, which may have consequences for the efficiency of carbon transfer and thus the trophic structure of freshwater food webs.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Straile, Dietmar</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Koch, Ulrike</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/17810"/> <dc:contributor>Koch, Ulrike</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Oecologia ; 167 (2011), 4. - pp. 981–989</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Grossart, Hans-Peter</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
