Stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen and fatty acid analyses are increasingly being used in combination to determine the trophic structure of marine systems. For stable isotopes, the variability in carbon and nitrogen isotopic signatures has long been recognised and has been characterised for some taxa. Whilst it is known that metabolic processes may influence fatty acid profiles, the spatial variability of fatty acid profiles has not been documented. Understanding at what scale these 2… CONTINUE READING
