Different carbon support for community respiration and secondary production in unproductive lakes

Abstract [en]

This study investigates the allocation of allochthonous organic carbon (AlloOC) to pelagic respiration and biomass production in unproductive lakes. Metabolic process rates and stable isotopic composition (delta C-13) of crustacean zooplankton and respired CO2 were measured in the epilimnion of 13 forest lakes in northern Sweden. The delta C-13 of zooplankton was low (-31.2 to -38.0 parts per thousand) compared to that of respired CO2 (-28.4 to -30.6 parts per thousand), implying that the relative importance of AlloOC was lower for zooplankton (ca 40%) than for respiration (ca 80%). Combining delta C-13 and carbon flux data revealed that a large amount of metabolized AlloOC was lost in respiration, compared to the amount transferred to zooplankton (< 3%). Thus, despite large respiratory losses, AlloOC was still important for zooplankton growth, implying a high supply of AlloOC in comparison to phytoplankton generated organic carbon in the lakes.
