    Labile Detrital Nitrogen Plank

    Concentration of N in labile (quickly broken down) organic matter with a C:N:P ratio of 106:16:1 derived from living microalgae, zooplankton, coral host tissue and zooxanthellae with the same C:N:P ratio. Thus the mass of phosphorus in DRed is given by: 1/16 31/14 DRed and the mass of carbon by: 106/16 12/14 DRed.

    Labile Detrital Nitrogen Benthic

    Concentration of N in labile (quickly broken down) organic matter with a C:N:P ratio of 550:30:1 derived from living seagrass and macroalgae with the same C:N:P ratio. Thus the mass of phosphorus in DAtk is given by: 1/30 31/14 D>sub>Atk and the mass of carbon by: 550/30 12/14 DAtk.
