Interactive Effects of Disturbance, Productivity, and Consumer Diversity on the Structure of Prey Communities
Mean densities of bacteria morphotypes (means ± SE) in consumer monocultures, polycultures, and averaged across monocultures. Results are shown separately for (a) low productivity and low disturbance treatments, (b) low productivity and high disturbance treatments, (c) high productivity and low disturbance treatments, and (d) high productivity and high disturbance treatments. Monocultures marked by an asterisk (*) are species that persisted in polyculture. Missing bars are for species that failed to persist in monocultures of the given treatment and have been removed from analyses. Original units in individuals/mL.
