Patterns of macroinvertebrate abundance in inland saline wetlands: a trophic analysis


We used stable isotopes and gut-content analysis to compare trophic relations of macroinvertebrates between two types of saline wetlands in the Laramie Basin, Wyoming, USA. Amphipods (Hyallela azteca), chironomid larvae, and predatory insects (mainly Zygopteran larvae) occurred in both wetland types. However, in oligosaline wetlands (0.5–5‰ total dissolved… (More)
