Leaf litter quality drives the feeding by invertebrate shredders in tropical streams

Guilherme Sena, José Francisco Gonçalves Júnior, Renato Martins, Neusa Hamada & Renan Rezende Rezende
Amazon and Cerrado forested streams show natural fluctuations in leaf-litter quantity along the time and space, suggesting a change on litter quality input. These natural fluctuations of leaf-litter have repercussion on the organic matter cycling and consequentlyeffects on leaf decomposition in forested streams. The effects of the quantity of leaf litter with contrasting traits on consumption by larvae of shredder insects from biomes with different organic matter dynamics have still been an understudied question. The...
