Project Description

I am looking at the plankton food web pathways to herring and juvenile salmon in the Salish Sea. I use fatty acid, and bulk and compound-specific stable isotope analyses to parameterize the pelagic food web and to resolve the energy pathways in order to improve ecosystem models.
