Dependence of consumers on macroalgal (Laminaria solidungula) carbon in an arctic kelp community: [[delta].sup.13]C evidence.
For example, Laminaria solidungula, a species of kelp whose physiological requirements are well documented (Chapman and Lindley, 1980; Henley and Dunton, 1995; Borum et al., 2002; Krause-Jensen et al., 2007) requires only 38 mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1] of irradiance to reach photosynthetic saturation in the Boulder Patch (Dunton and Jodwalis, 1988), considerably lower than the requirements of many macroalgae and nearly all kelp (Gomez et al., 2009; Wiencke et al., 2009).
Two species, Ralfsia ovata and Laminaria solidungula, are considered endemic to the Arctic.
At first glance, the dull browns of Laminaria solidungula (Fig.
Three kelp species {Laminaria solidungula, with two lesser co-dominants, Saccharina latissima and Alaria esculenta) are invariably present.
Only two Arctic endemic species (Ralfsia ovata and Laminaria solidungula) were recognized in the Boulder Patch.
solidungula shorten by 100 km a 500 km gap (Peard Bay to Stefansson Sound) between previously known concentrations of these kelp species.
solidungula raccourcissent de 100 km la distance de 500 km (de Peard Bay a Stefansson Sound) qui separe les concentrations precedemment connues de ces especes de varech.
solidungula) fastened to clusters of pebbles and small cobbles from windrows along Barrow's Chukchi Sea shore-line.
Given suitable substrate, Laminaria solidungula is also capable of sustaining populations at high latitudes, under sea ice persisting nine months or more annually (Dunton, 1990; Dunton and Dayton, 1995).
In 1971, Erk Reimnitz discovered cobbles, rocks, and boulders with abundant attached kelp (primarily Laminaria solidungula: Dunton, 1985) in Stefansson Sound.
solidungula (at depths of more than 20 m) were dredged in large amounts from the fast ice edge in 1998.
