Seawater temperature varies across multiple spatial and temporal scales, yet the roles that such variation play in altering biotic interactions are poorly known. We assessed temperature-mediated feeding behavior exhibited by the herbivorous amphipod Ampithoe longimana collected from cold-temperate and subtropical estuaries (27 degrees N and 41 degrees N, respectively). Individuals were offered a pairwise feeding choice between lyophilized seaweeds that provide higher fitness (Ulva intestinalis… CONTINUE READING
