SUMMARY 1  The question of whether the diets of twelve abundant macroinvertebrate taxa from the middle and lower reaches of the Buffalo River (eastern Cape, South Africa) were too variable to allow them to be assigned to functional feeding groups (FFGs) was addressed. 2  Spatial, temporal and developmental variations in diet were assessed. Foregut content analysis was used as an index to compare diets. 3  Foregut contents were compared from early (small) and late (large) instar… Expand
