In fishless habitats, salamanders often compete with and are predators of macroinvertebrates. Studies on the effects of these interactions, however, are limited. Much of the research has instead been focused on microinvertebrate prey, or has been focused within a single family of salamanders. Although results are mixed, some studies suggest that these interactions can significantly affect macroinvertebrate communities.
