Summary 1 The influence of the level of taxonomic resolution on estimates of food-web properties was studied in three grassland streams in New Zealand. The food webs, each of which contained ≈ 100 species of algae, macroinvertebrates and fish, were progressively aggregated into higher taxonomic groupings and the effect on food-web properties was assessed. Aggregation was also carried out differentially on particular taxonomic groups to mimic the usual approach to taxonomy in stream food-web… CONTINUE READING
