Breakdown and invertebrate colonization of dead wood in wetland , upland , and river habitats

  title={Breakdown and invertebrate colonization of dead wood in wetland , upland , and river habitats},
  author={Amy Braccia and Darold P. Batzer},
Breakdown of woody debris in river and upland habitats as well as the interactions between wood and invertebrates have been well described. Studies of wood in wetlands are rare, and far less is known about breakdown and invertebrate use of wood in these transitional habitats. This study experimentally assessed breakdown and invertebrate colonization of wood in a floodplain wetland and directly related patterns in the wetland to adjacent river and upland habitats. Over a 2.7 year period, we… CONTINUE READING
