Abstract : The U.S. Army Center for Environmental Health Research (USACEHR) expressed interest in the possibility of maintaining Daphnia magna neonates under prolonged cold conditions (4-6 degrees C). As a result, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) issued a Statement of Work (SOW) on July 19, 2006, which described the tasks that USACEHR wanted covered to address the maintenance of Daphnia magna under cold conditions (SAIC, 2006). The University of Maryland (UMD) submitted a proposal to SAIC on July 21, 2006, to conduct the tasks described in SAIC's SOW. This report describes the result of the tasks.
