Caption: Light micrograph of Daphnia magna, a large species of water flea. 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. This view shows the compound eye (black), the digestive system (green) with digested algae, and the developing eggs (left). Daphnia water fleas reproduce through parthenogenesis (female asexual reproduction). Magnification: x21 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
