A systematic review of the study of fish effects on benthic and emerging aquatic insects



Fish are often the top-consumers in freshwater ecosystems, and can strongly affect the biomass of benthic and emerging insects. However, based on our dataset, the study of fish effects is largely limited to experiments that manipulate 1-2 species of cyprinids or salmonids, most of which are water-column foragers. As a result, our knowledge of the role of fish in linked aquatic-riparian ecosystems is limited to a small subset of a typical fish community. Better taxonomic and functional representation is needed to fully predict the consequences of fish species loss/addition on aquatic-riparian ecosystems.
