Fatty acids composition of jellyfish polyps under different stress regimes: a three trophic levels experiment


To investigate the survival, growth, and phase transition ecology of Aurelia aurita polyps, we designed a factorial experiment manipulating food quality, food quantity and temperature. This raw data is about the fatty acid composition of polyps under different regimes, as well as the fatty acid of zooplankton and phytoplankton.

Different food qualities:Rhodo(-): Rhodomonas baltica cultured in medium lacking thiamin (VB 1 )Rhodo(+): R. baltica cultured in medium supplied thiamin (VB 1 )Aca(-): Acartia tonsa fed with Rhodo(-)Aca(+): A. tonsa fed with Rhodo(+)Art: Artemia salina hatched from commercial natural eggsPol(Aca-): Polyps fed with Aca(-)Pol(Aca+): Polyps fed with Aca(+)Pol(Art): Polyps fed with ArtDifferent food quantities:high: 20 μg C polyp-1 d-1medium: 5 μg C polyp-1 d-1low: 1.5 μg C polyp-1 d-1
