The whole-ecosystem 15N labeling experiment was conducted in a tidal freshwater marsh fringing the nutrient-rich Scheldt River. Results of the 15N tracing through the water-phase components of the marsh system are presented in this database. more

15N tracer incorporation into sediments, macrophytes, and higher trophic levels (pelagic and benthic) are described.
