Abstract

We hypothesized there would be differences in the microbial and infaunal communitiesprimarily responsible for degrading macrophyte vs. microalgal carbon. Specifically we predicted that:

The invertebrate community degrading macrophyte-derived carbon will be significantly different from those degrading algal-derived carbon.

The microbial communities (bacteria and fungi) degrading macrophyte-derived carbon will be significantly different from those not using this carbon source.
