Abstract We contend that a range of phenomena characterizing temperate deposit-feeding communities in low-energy environments is strongly organized by two principal opposing forces: (1) spatially localized inputs of detritus or new recruits, leading to a mosaic of initial patches, with subsequent impacts on spatio-temporal variation of species with limited mobility; and (2) the impact of mobile consumers, which move to spatially localized resources and thereby exert major controls over… CONTINUE READING
