Beyond the fish-Daphnia paradigm: testing the potential for Neoplea striola (Hemiptera: Pleidae) to cause a trophic cascade in subtropical ponds
Trophic cascades, or indirect effects of predators on non-adjacent lower trophic levels, are thought to pervade diverse ecosystems, though they tend to be stronger in aquatic ecosystems. Most research on freshwater trophic cascades focused on temperate lakes where Daphnia tend to dominate the zooplankton community, and these studies identified that Daphnia plays a key role in facilitating trophic cascades by linking fish to algae with strong food web interactions. However, Daphnia are rare ordoi:10.1101/2021.04.14.439893 fatcat:74dmbdu2cbbvzdos44ednfo6ee
