英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Current knowledge on the role of food for benthic communities and associated food webs focuses on quantity of available organic matter; however, the few studies that specifically address food quality show significant potential influences on food web and community structure. We examine current understanding of food quality and consider its contribution to regulating benthic ecosystems. By assembling data from the literature we found that, whereas food quantity increases benthic stocks (i.e., abundances), various trophic groups respond differently to quality parameters, suggesting that food quality can alter benthic trophic structure substantially. Moreover, contrasting ecosystems respond differently to food quantity and quality inputs. Based on our literature review we find...
