Nearshore Macrophyte Stable Isotopes - BC Central Coast - 2014-2018

The macrophyte stable isotope dataset is a component of the Hakai Institute’s Nearshore research and monitoring program. The overarching objective of Hakai Nearshore research is to investigate the role of habitats and their associated communities, in the face of stress and disturbances from global climate change and local coastal perturbations. Macrophyte tissue samples were collected from five major nearshore habitats over the years 2014 - 2018. Samples were collected from sites on or in the near vicinity of northern Calvert Island on the central coast of BC. Collection sites varied significantly in character both among and within habitats. At each site, the dominant macrophyte species were targeted for collection. As a result, a variety of species, from algae and seagrasses, are found within this dataset and vary slightly in sampling methods between habitats. The tissue samples were dried, processed, and analyzed for natural abundances of 13 C and 15 N. This data package is freely available to everyone, following the principles of equitable access and benefit sharing. However, we expect all data users to give attribution to the data providers (read our data license) and the use of these data should happen in the light of fair use, i.e.: 1) respect the data providers, and provide helpful feedback on data quality, and 2) communicate and/or collaborate with the providers if you are considering using this dataset for manuscripts or other forms of reporting.
