Comentario 


Efemerópteros y la fragmentación de la hojarasca
Por:
Tim Moulton y co-autores Claudia Andrade and Vinicius Neres-Lima

Una nota sobre la importancia de los insectos en el procesamiento de la hojarasca, aún cuando no sean fragmentadores según el concepto de grupos funcionales.

There has long been interest in macroinvertebrate shredders – almost perhaps to the degree of obsession amongst stream ecologists. The processes of tearing, masticating, mining and generally converting larger pieces of leaves into small pieces appears to be important in many northern hemisphere and higher latitude streams. Some of the early work in tropical American streams seemed to reveal a lack of shredders, or at least a lack of the classical shredders of temperate streams (Irons et al. 1994). With further work, the picture has become more complex, and there seems to be a variety of conditions of shredder diversity and shredding in different tropical streams (Boyero et al. 2015). Certainly Magnolia Longo found an abundance of shredders in her study at Isla Gorgonia and came up with an unusual and important shredder – cockroaches (Longo and Blanco 2014).
