Small invertebrate consumers produce consistent size spectra across reef habitats and climatic zones

Kate Fraser
Changes in invertebrate body size-distributions that follow loss of habitat-forming species can potentially affect a range of ecological processes, including predation and competition. In the marine environment, small crustaceans and other mobile invertebrates (‘epifauna’) represent a basal component in reef food webs, with a pivotal secondary production role that is strongly influenced by their body size-distribution. Ongoing degradation of reef habitats that affect invertebrate size distributions, particularly transformation of coral and kelp habitat to algal...
