...Eric von Elert; Anja Zitt; Anke Schwarzenberger SUMMARY Daphnia has been shown to acquire tolerance to cyanobacterial toxins within an animals' lifetime and to transfer this tolerance to the next generation. Here we used a strain of the cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa , which contained two...

...Peter Alpert SUMMARY Drying to equilibrium with the air kills nearly all animals and flowering plants, including livestock and crops. This makes drought a key ecological problem for terrestrial life and a major cause of human famine. However, the ability to tolerate complete desiccation...

.... Salinity tolerance varies during development, with 50 % lethal salinities (LS 50 ) ranging from approximately 15–17 ‰ in larvae to approximately 12 ‰ in postlarvae and 10 ‰ in adults. Larval and adult lobsters can avoid low-salinity areas using behavioural strategies. When exposed to low salinity...

More tolerant insects respond to microgram doses by developing either a slow progressive paralysis, as in lepidopterous larvae, or a rapid but reversible paralysis, as in Trachyderma philistina...
