Abstract

Disease-driven amphibian declines in neotropical headwater streams have affected ecosystem functioning and macroinvertebrate community structure. We examined changes in macroinvertebrate communities associated with amphibian declines in 10 Panamanian headwater streams that provided a chronosequence of pre- and post-decline conditions. Total macroinvertebrate taxa richness declined with time since amphibian declines across all streams (P
