Abstract

Total assimilation of S. anglica was around 40-45g C m-2, which represents up to 20% of annual net primary shoot production (ANPPs). Of this, Nereis diversicolor accounted for >85%of the collective S. anglica asimilated by all macro-invertebrates. Fauna associated with the vegetation canopy assimilated only approx 0.5g C m-2 (or <0.3% of ANPPs). -from Authors
