We examined the hypothesis that the d13C of benthic consumers is depleted in offshore, deeper waters where kelp and benthic microalgae are absent by conducting three analyses: (1) we analyzed d13C (and d15N) of consumers along a nearshore–offshore gradient in the field, (2) we analyzed d13C (and d15N) of consumers placed in cages at various depths and distances from shore, and (3) we reexamined published stable isotope values for consumers taken at various depths from studies around the world… CONTINUE READING
