Trophic polymorphism in bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) introduced into Lake Biwa: evidence from stable isotope analysis
Trophic polymorphism was recently reported in introduced bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus) in Lake Biwa, Japan, where three morphs are specialized in benthic invertebrates (benthivorous type), submergedExpand

Vertical heterogeneity of a forest floor invertebrate food web as indicated by stable-isotope analysis
Diverse populations of invertebrates constitute the food web in detritus layers of a forest floor. Heterogeneity in trophic interactions within such a species-rich community food web may affect theExpand

Stable nitrogen isotopic composition of amino acids reveals food web structure in stream ecosystems
The stable N isotopic composition of individual amino acids (SIAA) has recently been used to estimate trophic positions (TPs) of animals in several simple food chain systems. However, it is unknownExpand
