Description

Carbon flux matrix of the Takapoto atoll planktonic food web

as reconstructed by inverse modelling by Niquil et al. (1998).

The Takapoto Atoll lagoon is located in the French Polynesia of the South Pacific

The food web comprises 7 functional compartments:

  • Phytoplankton

  • Bacteria

  • Protozoa

  • Microzooplankton

  • Mesozooplankton

  • Detritus

  • Dissolved organic carbon (DOC)

and three external compartments/sinks:

  • CO2

  • Sedimentation

  • Grazing

These compartments are connected with 32 flows. Units of the flows are mg C/m2/day

Usage

1

Format

matrix with flow values, where element ij denotes flow from compartment i to j

rownames and columnames are the components.
