Food webs describe how species interactions transfer sources of carbon and nutrients from primary producers to higher trophic levels. Although increasing evidence has shown consumers to be key components in nutrient cycling through ecosystems, consumers are typically thought of as a black box in ecosystem models. Recent LTER studies have highlighted the spatiotemporal variation in consumer resource use, but a better characterization of the drivers of carbon and nutrient cycling in consumers is needed to incorporate consumers into ecosystem models. The purpose of this workshop is to identify, compile, and synthesize food web data (e.g. stable isotope data, gut contents, barcoding) from across LTER sites with the goal of developing a manuscript that characterizes drivers of variation in energy flow and consumer nutrient cycling and identifies key research gaps.
