A hump-shaped relationship between isolation and abundance of Notonecta irrorata colonists in aquatic mesocosms.

Abstract

We examined the relationship between the isolation of experimental aquatic mesocosms and the abundance of an aquatic insect colonist, Notonecta irrorata, over two years. We used a curve-fitting approach to assess whether linear or quadratic models better describe the relationship between isolation and abundance. For two measures of mesocosm isolation… (More)
