Impact of tadpoles and mosquito larvae on ephemeral pond structure and processes
Competition between organisms can influence both the abundance of species and the function of ecosystems. Here, I report the results of a field-based aquatic microcosm experiment, where the timing of arrival and abundance of two herbivores, tadpoles (Limnodynastes tasmaniensis) and mosquito larvae (Ochlerotatus notoscriptus), were manipulated to determine their impact on invertebrate community structure and ecosystem processes. Although successful establishment decreased with experimental time,...[Show more]
