- ... Diel vertical migration (DVM) of zooplankton is a behavioral antipredator defense that is shaped by the trade—off between higher predation risk in surface waters and reduced growth in deeper waters. We conducted two laboratory experiments to quantify the costs connected with DVM. In the first experiment, Daphnia magna were kept individually in thermally stratified flow—through tubes and exposed to ...
