Differential zooplankton trophic responses to environmental perturbations in the California Current Ecosystem

Poster Number:  396 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael Landry 15N isotopic compositions of zooplankton species in the California Current Ecosystem (CCE) vary over interannual and decadal scales of climate variability, but the extent to which those

Predator: prey size relationships of marine zooplankton: Testing the 10:1 hypothesis with stable isotopes

Poster Number:  395 Presenter/Primary Author:  Michael Landry Size-based theories of energy flow in marine plankton ecosystems, as well as numerous conceptual models, assume that predators and prey are linked, on average, by a body length ratio of 10:1.
