The positive top-down effects on macrophytes of the removal of fouling epiphytes by herbivores versus negative bottom-up effects of enhanced epiphyte growth through nutrient enrichment are known from previous works. However, few studies have differentiated effects within the suite of herbivore species, nor have they investigated the potential negative effects of these grazers on macrophytes. We conducted a mesocosm experiment to investigate the impact of different grazer compositions (no… CONTINUE READING
