For 2321 species of shelled gastropods of the northeastern Pacific, the ratio of carnivorous to non-carnivorous species (C/NC ratio), computed for each degree of latitude, reveals striking spatial changes, with tropical and arctic areas characterized by high values and with the midlatitudes having the lowest ratios. This latitudinal trend is markedly different from trends for terrestrial clades. The zonal variation in C/NC ratios within bins is largely due to differences in geographic ranges of… CONTINUE READING
