Effects of Temperature, Photoperiod and Myxobolus cerebralis Infection on Growth, Reproduction and Survival of Tubifex tubifex Lineages
Entry ID: MSU_19

Abstract: Monocultures of lineages III and VI from 2001 San Juan River collections were subjected to infection (0 and 500 myxospores/worm), a range of temperature (5oC, 17oC, and 27oC), and diurnal photoperiod (12:12, 14:10 and 16:8 dark:light) over a 70-d period using a split-split plot experimental design.

Purpose: The objective of our research was to characterize the responses of two lineages of T. tubifex found in the San Juan River tailwater studies (DuBey and Caldwell 2004) to a range of photoperiod and thermal regimes and determine if infection by M. cerebralis would affect growth and survival of lineages.
