The Ecology of Aquatic Invertebrates in Malaysian Tropical Peat Swamps

posted on 2019-09-20, 05:27 authored by VISHALINI GHOBE
The ecology of aquatic invertebrates with specific reference to tropical peat swamps are poorly known. This thesis is a first attempt which examines the temporal variation in aquatic invertebrate community composition and changes in the invertebrate composition under different land uses in North Selangor Peat Swamp Forest (NSPSF). The thesis also examines the differences between food webs of natural intact peat swamp forest site versus human-modified peat swamp habitats. This study is a first attempt to describe the energy sources of peat swamp forest food web dynamics as well as the impact of disturbances on food webs in human -modified peat swamp sites.
