DNA metabarcoding highlights cyanobacteria as the main source of primary production in a pelagic food web model

In this study we used data from dietary metabarcoding studies of zooplankton to calculate prey selectivity indices and assess energy fluxes in a pelagic resource-consumer network. We show that food web dynamics are influenced by prey selectivity and temporal match-mismatch in growth cycles and that cyanobacteria are the main source of primary production in the … More DNA metabarcoding highlights cyanobacteria as the main source of primary production in a pelagic food web model
