A Seasonally Dynamic Estuarine Ecosystem Provides a Diverse Prey Base for Elasmobranchs

Every, Sharon; Fulton, Christopher J; Pethybridge, Heidi R.; Kyne, Peter M.; Crook, David A.

Description

Tropical river and estuarine food webs sustain diverse biodiversity values and are important sources of nutrients and energy for connected aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. High-order predators, such as euryhaline elasmobranchs, play critical roles in these food webs, but a lack of detailed information on food web structure limits our ability to manage these species within their ecosystems. We analysed stable carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) isotopes (SI) and fatty acid (FA) biochemical...[Show more]
