We investigated the effects of water extraction and flow regime on leaf litter breakdown in 10 Hong Kong streams experiencing varying degrees of extraction: five with severe extraction (>85% downstream flow removed), four with moderate extraction (20–85% removed), and one without extraction (~0% removed). Breakdown rates, macroinvertebrate assemblages and… CONTINUE READING
