Data from: Rearing temperature and fatty acid supplementation jointly affect lipid fluorescence polarization and heat tolerance in DaphniaDominik Martin-Creuzburg, Bret L. Coggins, Dieter Ebert & Lev Yampolsky
The homeoviscous adaptation hypothesis states that the relative abundance of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in membrane phospholipids of ectothermic organisms decreases with increasing temperatures to maintain vital membrane properties. We reared Daphnia magna at 15°, 20°, and 25°C and increasing dietary concentrations of the long-chain PUFA eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) to test the hypothesis that the well-documented increase in heat tolerance of high-temperature-reared Daphnia is due to a reduction in body PUFA concentrations. Heat tolerance was...
