Food Web Isotope Study at North Temperate Lakes LTER 2004 - 2010

Abstract

Stable isotope ratios (d13C and d15N) were measured in archived scale samples of seven fish species captured in Sparkling Lake over the period 1981 through 2009. Stable isotopes of benthic and pelagic food web end members (macroinvertebrates and zooplankton, respectively) were also measured. Zooplankton were from samples taken in Sparkling Lake, Allequash Lake, and Big Muskellunge Lake. Zoobenthos were from samples taken in Sparkling Lake.
