About this book

EE Book 21 summarizes decades of work by Winfried Lampert and his colleagues on the evolutionary adaptations that determine the composition of plankton communities. The author illustrates changes in paradigms over the years, reviews ecological and evolutionary theory, and highlights the importance of Daphnia for the biological functioning of lakes. Finally, he also emphasizes the perspectives for future research afforded by the recent publication of the Daphnia genome.
