Keratella tropica had longer duration of pre-reproductive and reproductive periods, average lifespan, life expectancy at hatching and generation time, and higher net reproductive rate than K. valga. In subtropical lakes, the higher density of K. tropica might be attributed to its longer lifespan and higher reproductive rate.
