Amazon River carbon dioxide outgassing fuelled by wetlands
River systems connect the terrestrial biosphere, the atmosphere and the ocean in the global carbon cycle. A recent estimate suggests that up to 3 petagrams of carbon per year could be emitted asExpand

Organic matter in a subtropical mangrove-estuary subjected to wastewater discharge: Origin and utilisation by two macrozoobenthic species
Total lipid amounts, fatty acid signature analysis, and C:N measurements were used to investigate the sources of organic matter in an Okinawan estuary (Okukubi, Japan) during the 1999 rainy season.Expand

Growth and condition indices in juvenile sole Solea solea measured to assess the quality of essential fish habitat
We used growth rates (estimated from otolith microstructure), morphometric (Fulton's K condition index) and lipid (triacylglycerols:sterols ratio, TAG:ST) condition indices measured on 0-groupExpand

Fatty acids as tracers of organic matter in the sediment and food web of a mangrove/intertidal flat ecosystem, Okinawa, Japan
Surface sediments and marine invertebrates, collected from 2 intertidal flats on Okinawa Island, 1 adjacent to a mangrove system, were analysed for fatty acid composition. The detection of fatty acidExpand

Symbiotic zooxanthellae provide the host-coral Montipora digitata with polyunsaturated fatty acids.
We compared the fatty acid composition of the host-coral Montipora digitata with the fatty acid composition in the coral's endosymbiotic dinoflagellates (zooxanthellae). Fatty acids as methyl estersExpand

Fatty acids as trophic tracers in an experimental estuarine food chain: Tracer transfer
The transfer of fatty acid (FA) biomarkers was assessed by an experimental food chain comprising three trophic levels: leaves of the mangrove Avicennia marina, the grapsid crab ParasesarmaExpand

Investigating the distribution and sources of organic matter in surface sediment of Coombabah Lake (Australia) using elemental, isotopic and fatty acid biomarkers
Abstract Extensive physical and biological measurements were made of the surface sediments within the shallow, semi-urbanised Coombabah Lake in southern Moreton Bay, Australia. Sediment bulkExpand

Stable isotope and fatty acid tracers in energy and nutrient studies of jellyfish: a review
Studies of the trophic ecology of gelatinous zooplankton have predominantly employed gut content analyses and grazing experiments. These approaches record only what is consumed rather than what isExpand

Growth and condition indices of juvenile turbot, Scophthalmus maximus, exposed to contaminated sediments: effects of metallic and organic compounds.
Since sediments have the potential to form associations with several classes of pollutants, they have been recognized as a possible and significant source of contamination for the benthicExpand

Ontogenetic change in the lipid and fatty acid composition of scleractinian coral larvae
Some scleractinian coral larvae have an extraordinary capacity to delay metamorphosis, and this is reflected in the large geographic range of many species. Coral eggs typically contain a highExpand
