With this study, we aim at obtaining an integrated view of the genetic structure and diversity in Daphnia magna populations. We will assess the impact of specific ecological factors on the genetic structure of the populations at the within and among populational level. The genetic structure of the populations will be characterised using molecular markers (allozymes and DNA microsatellite markers). The populations under study will cover a substantial part of Europe and will be situated along a northeast-southwest axis.
