  • Identifying targets of selection in metal contaminated habitats
  • Direct estimation of metal induced mutation in the Daphnia mutation accumulation lines
  • The effect of genetic background on acute metal exposure within the amphipod genus Hyalella
  • The fitness effect of spontaneous and induced mutations in Daphnia pulex
  • Mechanisms of evolution of copper tolerance in Daphnia
  • Mutation loads and metal tolerance of Daphnia from metal-contaminated and reference lakes
