Colonisation of experimentally immersed wood in south eastern Australia: responses of feeding groups to changes in riparian vegetation

McKie, Brendan; Cranston, Peter


We investigated macroinvertebrate abundance and functional feeding groups colonising experimentally-positioned woody substrates of different species in streams with three different riparian vegetation types. Native Eucalyptus forest formed a dense closed canopy over our streams; introduced (exotic, alien) pine plantation forest did not fully shade the streams, and grassland streams were completely open, although with woody riparian vegetation well upstream of our sites. Macroinvertebrate...[Show more]
