  • For a majority of aquatic ecosystems, respiration ( R ) exceeds autochthonous gross primary production (GPP). These systems have negative net ecosystem production ((NEP) = (GPP) - R ) and ratios of (GPP)/ R of <1. This net heterotrophy can be sustained only if aquatic respiration is subsidized by organic inputs from the catchment. Such subsidies imply that organic materials that escaped decomposition in the terrestrial environment must become susceptible to decomposition in the linked aquatic… CONTINUE READING
