Abstract
    How well are We able to synthesize current understanding of how bottom-up Controls affect higher trophic levels? We consider this question with respect to five general approaches: Long-term data collection, cross-ecosystem Comparisons, computational models, nutrient and energy budgets, and experiments. The current Status of each approach is assessed, published examples are identified, strengths and weaknesses are summarized, and recommendations are offered with specific attention to their utility for management. The foundation of estuarine synthesis is the formulation of models, both Conceptual and mathematical. To the extent that models permeate this work, We emphasize the need to repeatedly question, revise, and test with data the fundamental assumptions of the models implicitly or explicitly underlying each approach.
