New Zealand mudsnails (NZMS, Potamopyrgus antipodarum) are invading North American aquatic ecosystems with potentially enormous impacts on stream communities and ecosystems. Here we present a unique 10 year(More)
Stable isotopes can illuminate resource usage by organisms, but effective interpretation is predicated on laboratory validation. Here we develop stable isotope clocks to track resource shifts in anadromous rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). We used a diet-switch experiment and model fitting to quantify N stable isotope (δ15N) turnover rates and(More)
