Carbon flow and trophic structure of an Antarctic coastal benthic community as determined by δ13C and δ15N
Abstract Stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen were used to determine the different carbon pathways and trophic assemblages amongst coastal benthic fauna of the Windmill Islands, East Antarctica.Expand
Establishing a food web model for coastal Antarctic benthic communities: a case study from the Vestfold Hills
Shallow-water benthic communities throughout coastal Antarctica share many spe- cies and are governed by similar physico-oceanographic processes. This suggests community structure and function may beExpand
A Southern Ocean dietary database
Knowledge of the trophic functioning of Southern Ocean ecosystems is critical to their understanding and management. Marine ecosystem models, often used to explore the potential impacts of humanExpand
The Ecosystem Services of Marine Aquaculture: Valuing Benefits to People and Nature
As the world's population continues to grow, the way in which ocean industries interact with ecosystems will be key to supporting the longevity of food and social securities. Aquaculture is crucialExpand
What do qualitative rapid assessment collections of macroinvertebrates represent? A comparison with extensive quantitative sampling
It is a fundamental tenet of Rapid Biological Assessments (RBA) that the samples collected reflect the community from which they are drawn. As with any biological sampling, RBA collections areExpand
Shellfish reef habitats: a synopsis to underpin the repair and conservation of Australia’s environmental, social and economically important bays and estuaries
This report describes the historic extent and current knowledge of Australian shellfish reefs and identifies knowledge gaps and future research priorities with the aim of supporting restorationExpand
Australian shellfish ecosystems: Past distribution, current status and future direction
We review the status of marine shellfish ecosystems formed primarily by bivalves in Australia, including: identifying ecosystem-forming species, assessing their historical and current extent, causesExpand
Restoring Angasi oyster reefs: what is the endpoint ecosystem we are aiming for and how do we get there?
Three-dimensional reefs and beds created predominately by the native Angasi Oyster or Flat Oyster (Ostrea angasi) were once common across its range in Australia's southern coastal waters but wereExpand
Research article: small-scale spatial variation of δ13C and δ15N isotopes in Antarctic carbon sources and consumers
Regional food web studies that fail to account for small-scale isotopic variability can lead to a mismatch between an organism’s inferred and true trophic position. Misinterpretation of trophicExpand
