Seeing Red: Daphnia And Hemoglobin

Students observe physical features of Daphnia and explain how characteristics allow them to survive, investigate Daphnia's ecological interactions, and observe how Daphnia turn red under low oxygen conditions through increased production of hemoglobin. They then discuss how invasive species can populate foreign area, predict type of adaptation that has allowed it to invade North America, and discuss what impacts an invasive species can have on ecosystem.
