Tracing the origin of nutrients is a fundamental goal of food web research but methodological issues associated with current research techniques such as using stable isotope ratios of bulk tissue can lead to confounding results. We investigated whether naturally occurring δ(13)C patterns among amino acids (δ(13)CAA) could distinguish between multiple(More)
We compared several large marine ecosystems in terms of species numbers of fishes, sea birds, marine mammals, and cephalopods. We examined how these numbers were distributed by trophic level, from her-bivores to top predators. We created group-specific trophic signatures as plots of number of species by trophic level, and used these to identify similarities(More)
A program for IBM-compatible microcomputers is introduced which combines several complementary analyses of species-station-tables generated in ecological field investigations. The scope of the program encompasses table editing functions, routines for community delimitation by cluster analysis and procedures for the analysis of properties related both to(More)
