The food web structure of a headwater stream (Hapen Creek) in subtropical northern Taiwan, which is subject to regular typhoon disturbances, was characterised using stable isotope techniques. δ13C and δ15N signatures were used to examine (i) the relative contributions of allochthonous versus. autochthonous sources to the web, and (ii) the trophic organisation of the community including the predominant feeding guilds and the most prevalent feeding mode. This study presents food web attributes… CONTINUE READING
