Abstract: We employ semigroup and spectral methods to analyze the linear stability of positive stationary solutions of a generalized size-structured Daphnia model. Using the regularity properties of the governing semigroup, we are able to formulate a general stability condition which permits an intuitively clear interpretation in a special case of model ingredients. Moreover, we derive a comprehensive instability criterion that reduces to an elegant instability condition for the classical Daphnia population model in terms of the inherent net reproduction rate of Daphnia individuals.
