    • Ecology of Insect Communities in Nontidal Wetlands 

      Batzer, Darold P.; Wissinger, Scott A. (Annual Reviews, 1996)
      Published research about wetland insects has proliferated, and a conceptual foundation about how wetland insect populations and communities are regulated is being built. Here we review and synthesize this new body of work. ...
    • Foraging trade-offs along a predator-permanence gradient in subalpine wetlands 

      Wissinger, Scott A.; Whiteman, Howard H.; Sparks, Grace B.; Rouse, Gretchen L.; Brown, Wendy S. (Ecological Society of America, 1999-09)
      We conducted a series of field and laboratory experiments to determine the direct and indirect effects of a top predator, the tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum nebulosum), on larvae of two species of limnephilid caddisflies ...
    • Impacts of introduced brown and rainbow trout on benthic invertebrate communities in shallow New Zealand lakes 

      Wissinger, Scott A.; McIntosh, Angus R.; Greig, Hamish S. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2006-10-04)
      1. Brown and rainbow trout have been introduced to many inland waters in New Zealand, but research on the impacts on native communities has focused mainly on streams. The purpose of this study was to compare the benthic ...
    • Intraguild predation and cannibalism among larvae of detritivorous caddisflies in subalpine wetlands 

      Wissinger, Scott A.; Sparks, Grace B.; Rouse, Gretchen L.; Brown, Wendy S.; Steltzer, Heidemarie (Ecological Society of America, 1996-12-01)
      Comparative data from subalpine wetlands in Colorado indicate that larvae of the limnephilid caddisflies, Asynarchus nigriculus and Limnephilus externus, are reciprocally abundant among habitats–Limnephilus larvae dominate ...
    • Temporal shift of diet in alternative cannibalistic morphs of the tiger salamander 

      Denoël, Mathieu; Whiteman, Howard H.; Wissinger, Scott A. (Linnean Society of London, 2006-01-15)
      Evolutionary theory predicts that alternative trophic morphologies are adaptive because they allow a broad use of resources in heterogeneous environments. The development of a cannibal morphology is expected to result in ...
