The big, surf-diving iguanas of the Galapagos, Amblyrhynchus

Adult male marine iguanas, Amblyrhynchus

We evaluated the efficacy of using stomach content analysis of three commonly occurring benthophagous fishes belonging to three different orders and foraging strategies (Eigenmannia virescens (Valenciennes, 1836) --Gymnotiformes, electrical; Iheringichthys labrosus (Lutken, 1874)--Siluriformes, olfactory; and Leporinus amblyrhynchus
Garavello and Britski, 1987--Characiformes, visual) as a proxy for providing information about benthic macroinvertebrate communities.
