Benthic food web structure in the Comau fjord, Chile (∼42°S): Preliminary assessment including a site with chemosynthetic activity
Description: Here scientists examine trophic structure at a fjord with chemosynthetic activity. The food web is maintained mainly by photosynthetic primary production. The benthic ecosystem of the Comau fjord comprises four trophic levels. Bacterial filaments could be incorporated to the diet of some grazer species. [Source: Progress in Oceanography]
