The δ15N trophic enrichment in littoral food webs is not well known despite the importance of macroinvertebrates in lacustrine energy fluxes. We wanted to assess the influence of functional feeding group (grazer, collector, shredder, predator, predator–hematophagous, predator–sucker) and spatiotemporal variables (year, month, station of sampling) on littoral macroinvertebrate δ15N signatures. For 2 years, during the plant growth period phytophilous littoral macroinvertebrates were sampled in… CONTINUE READING
