Daphnia carinata (Water flea, CSIRO-1) (CSIRO_AGI_Dcar_v0.2)

About Daphnia carinata

The water flea Daphnia carinata is emerging as a new model for biological studies due to its natural cyclical parthenogenesis and small genome [1]. Daphnia is a genus of small planktonic crustaceans, 0.2–6.0 mm (0.01–0.24 in) in length. Daphnia are members of the order Anomopoda, and are one of the several small aquatic crustaceans commonly called water fleas because their saltatory swimming style resembles the movements of fleas. Daphnia spp. live in various aquatic environments ranging from acidic swamps to freshwater lakes and ponds.
