CT003:
Integrative Approaches and Emerging Techniques to Study the Sources and Cycling of Organic Matter Through Isotope Ecology and Geochemistry


Session ID#: 28465

Session Description:
The sources and cycling of organic matter play a major role in the structure and function of life on Earth. These processes influence everything from individual consumer-resource relationships to ecosystem responses to climate change. Recent advances in the stable and radio-isotope analysis of individual compounds (e.g., amino acids, fatty acids, etc.) have opened new doors to studying a wide range of interconnected topics, including: physiology, diet and trophic dynamics, animal migration and reproduction, biogeochemical cycling, and the processing of organic matter. This session focuses on the development and integrative application of novel techniques for isotope geochemistry (both compound-specific and cutting edge bulk) to study these ecological and biogeochemical dynamics in marine systems. We encourage submissions across a range of isotopes, compounds, and scales of biological organization (e.g., molecular, organismal, and ecosystem). This session seeks to open new discussions about current and emerging tools, their benefits and limitations, and applications to new questions and systems that push the evolution of this field.
