Relationships between depth and δ15N of Arctic benthos vary among regions and trophic functional groups
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-03-27)
Stable isotope ratios of nitrogen (δ<sup>15</sup>N) of benthic primary consumers are often significantly related to water depth. This relationship is commonly attributed to preferential uptake of <sup>14</sup>N from sinking particulate organic matter (POM) by microbes, and suggests that relationships between δ<sup>15</sup>N and water depth may be affected by local POM sources and flux dynamics. ...
