Fatty acid trophic markers in the pelagic marine environment.
A conceptual model of the spatial and temporal dominance of group-specific primary producers, and hence the basic fatty acid patterns available to higher trophic levels is presented and is based on stratification.
Lipid storage in marine zooplankton
The various functions storage lipids serve during the life history stages of zooplankton are very complex and still not fully understood and hence offer a multitude of fascinating research perspectives.
Microbial production of recalcitrant dissolved organic matter: long-term carbon storage in the global ocean
The microbial carbon pump is proposed as a conceptual framework to address the important, multifaceted biogeochemical problem of fixed carbon in the upper ocean.
A simple and efficient method for the solid‐phase extraction of dissolved organic matter (SPE‐DOM) from seawater
A simple protocol is presented for the solid-phase extraction of dissolved organic matter (SPE-DOM) from seawater using commercially prepacked cartridges. The method does not require major
Biogeochemical characteristics of dissolved and particulate organic matter in Russian rivers entering the Arctic Ocean
Abstract The biogeochemical signature of riverine matter in the Russian Arctic was investigated to establish a background for tracing terrestrial organic material in the Arctic Ocean. Elemental and
The biogeochemistry of the river and shelf ecosystem of the Arctic Ocean: a review
The Arctic Ocean is, on a volume basis, the ocean with the highest terrestrial input in terms of freshwater and organic matter. The drainage areas of the Arctic contain more than half of the organic
Mangroves, a major source of dissolved organic carbon to the oceans
[1] Organic matter, which is dissolved in low concentrations in the vast waters of the oceans, contains a total amount of carbon similar to atmospheric carbon dioxide. To understand global
Lipids and life strategy of Arctic Calanus
It is concluded that the Arctic Calanus species are herbivores, engineered to feed on the Arctic bloom, and that the timing of the bloom is the most important factor in determining the life strategies of the individual species.
Lipids in Arctic benthos: does the fatty acid and alcohol composition reflect feeding and trophic interactions?
Investigations showed that lipid analyses can give important hints on trophic relationships of benthic species and may serve as means to establish the intensity of pelagic-benthic coupling.
Molecular formulae of marine and terrigenous dissolved organic matter detected by electrospray ionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry
Abstract The chemical structure of refractory marine dissolved organic matter (DOM) is still largely unknown. Electrospray ionization Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (ESI
