Three students added equal volumes of pond water to each of four
beakers (I–IV) and placed each in a different constant temperature
bath, maintained at 5°C, 15°C, 25°C, and 35°C , respectively. The
students then added 6 water fleas, Daphnia pulex, to each of the
four beakers and recorded the time in each case. After 1 hour, the
students removed 3 Daphnia pulex from each beaker and each
student immediately observed one Daphnia pulex under low-
power magnification of a light microscope. (The transparent body
of the Daphnia pulex can be seen easily under a light microscope.)
