Agradecimentos: We thank Andrew MacDonald and Maraísa Resende for valuable help in the fieldwork and laboratory, and Angie Peace for helping with the phosphorus analyses. We thank two anonymous referees for helpful comments on the manuscript. This study was largely suppor

In many aquatic ecosystems, detritus is the main basal resource and is able to support highly productive food webs. However, detritus is a relatively poor-quality resource compared with living plants. Despite substantial research on how the nutrient content of living plants limits herbivores, there...
