The Contribution of Microarthropods to Aboveground Foodwebs: A Review and Model of Belowground Transfer in a Coniferous Forest

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A food web model of predator arthropods and microarthropods was developed based upon data collected at SRS. The model indentifies numerous connections because of the diversity of species. Relationships vary over time and many predators feed on their own group. The model demonstrates the importance of detrital food webs in belowground and aboveground transfers in the ecosystem.
