Caption: Water flea (Daphnia pulex), light micrograph. Water fleas are small crustaceans, commonly found in fresh water. They are filter feeders that ingest algae, protozoa or organic matter, and are a constituent of plankton. Daphnia reproduce through parthenogenesis (female asexual reproduction). The carapace is transparent and several embryos can be seen within the body (bottom right).
