Marine primary producers (pelagic phytoplankton, benthic microalgae, and macroalgae) and terrestrial C3 photosynthesis plants typically have well-separated carbon stable isotope ratios, whereas a relatively large fractionation of the nitrogen stable isotope ratio is observed among trophic steps (De Niro & Epstein 1978, Minagawa & Wada 1984).
