Melanie J. Bishop and Brendan P. Kelaher Context-specific effects of the identity of detrital mixtures on invertebrate communities Ecology and Evolution 3
We conducted field experiments to disentangle how the richness, identity and biomass of detrital mixtures influence invertebrate communities of estuarine sediments. Our experiments utilized eight litter sources that are presently experiencing human-mediated changes in their supply to estuarine mudflats, and were replicated in three estuaries. Our study demonstrates that changing detrital source biodiversity will modify detrital food webs via context-specific identity effects.
