Variation in substrate association types and maximum size of aquatic insects were studied in a vegetated littoral zone of three lake basins. The basins differed from each other in trophic status, biomass of benthivorous fish, and abundance of macrophytes. Four types of substrate association – swimmers, crawlers, semisessiles and burrowers, respectively – were assumed to represent decreasing vulnerability to fish predators. Large-sized species were also hypothesised to be more vulnerable to fish… CONTINUE READING
