Re: How Did Hadrosaurs Survive? (Was: Hadrosaur "mummy" questions)
From: John Bois <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Ha! I was going to say that. However, by "prey" here, you mean
photosynthetic plankton, right?
Yes, I meant phytoplankton. I'm looking here at an inverted pyramid of
biomass in the English Channel. Phytoplankton make up 0.4 g dry wt/m^2,
zooplankton make up 1.5 g dry wt/m^2, and pelagic fish (the primary
carnivores) make up 1.8 g dry wt/m^s. As I said before, the inversion is
made possible by the high rate of proction by the producers.
