SUMMARY 1. We performed two field experiments using different cage sizes to determine the direct and indirect effects of carp on macrophytes and invertebrate community composition in a shallow lake. 2. The presence of carp produced a significant decrease in macrophyte abundance, changes in species composition and decreased abundance and diversity of invertebrates in small (2.5 · 2.5 · 2.0 m) cages. In large exclosures (15 · 5 m), only macrophyte stem length was significantly affected by carp. 3… CONTINUE READING
