High Complexity Food Webs in Low-diversity Eastern Pacific Reef–Coral Communities

  title={High Complexity Food Webs in Low-diversity Eastern Pacific Reef–Coral Communities},
  author={Peter W. Glynn},
Community-wide feeding interrelationships in a low-diversity coral reef off the Pacific coast of Panamá (Uva Island reef) demonstrate complex pathways involving herbivore, strong corallivore, and carnivore interactions. Four trophic levels with 31 interguild links are identified in a generalized food web, and documented feeding interrelationships with 287+ species links are portrayed in a coral–corallivore subweb. The importance of trophic groups changes greatly with time, from unknown causes… CONTINUE READING
