What is the role of benthic faunal carbon and nutrient pools in the coastal ecosystem? This project will provide new information regarding stoichiometric and allometric traits of important benthic species to test and expand principles of ecological stoichiometry and metabolic scaling theories. The results will be used to estimate the consequences of human-induced imbalances in C:N:P ratios for benthic nutrient turnover rates in the coastal zone.
