The goal of this study is to experimentally assess the possible effect of macroinvertebrate predators on the decomposition rate of leaves in a Mediterranean stream and to analyse the pattern of colonization by macroinvertebrates of the litter bags through time.

... Additionally, in those habitats where top predators may arrive, trophic cascades may develop and have an effect on the diversity of the community through consumptive and non-consumptive effects (Shurin and Allen 2001). Nonetheless, in previous experimental studies in the same stream reach, no such trophic cascades were detected in the detrital pathway of the food web (López-Rodríguez et al. 2018). ...
