Description Benthic heterotrophs living in aphotic aquatic habitats rely upon subsidies of detrital energy, in the form of complex organic molecules, which are synthesized by macrophytes and phytoplankton in the photic zone. Identifying the relative importance of different basal energy resources to consumers is critical for understanding ecosystem function and trophic connectivity in aquatic habitats. Partitioning the contribution of differing detrital resources to deep nearshore subtidal consumers is... Thesis (Ph.D.)--University of Washington, 2013
