The 13th chapter of the “Inhabitants of the microworld” series is called “Lonely Alona”.
There are many species of fresh water crustaceans pertaining to the group of Cladocerans, commonly named “water fleas”. And those species pertaining to the genus Alona use to be poorly known. They are very small, hardly larger than some ciliates, and it is perhaps due to this characteristic they play a very important role as prey in the aquatic ecosystems.
This is the 13th chapter of a series that will bring to us a video per day during this confinement forced by COVID-19.
We hope that you enjoy this initiative, which gives access to a documentary series for free to the world, and you share it with everyone you think will possibly be interested.
