Consequences of larval intraspecific competition to stonefly growth and fecundity

Abstract

We conducted experiments in replicated circular streams to measure the effect of intraspecific larval density on growth rates, size at emergence, timing of emergence, and fecundity of two species of predatory stoneflies (Megarcys signata and Kogotus modestus, Perlodidae). Early instars of both species showed no significant effect of intraspecific larval… (More)
