I am currently doing a biolgy project studying the effects of different oxygen levels on Daphnia. To carry out my experiment, I will measure the heart rate of at leaset 5 daphnia at certain intervals, each 5 daphnia from one of the six different Oxygen levels made up. I need information for my formal write up of the experiment and am finding it very difficult to find direct info on how oxygen levels effect Daphnia. My hypotheses is that lower levels of oxygen increase the heart rate of Daphnia. What happens if the heart rate is increased? How do Daphnia take oxygen in and use it? etc. It would also be of great help if you know of any similar experiments carried out. Thank you for your time.
Re: Do different oxygen levels in water effect Daphnia and why?
