Description

Siliceous sponges are the only archive of bottom water DSi concentration to date and require more attention in order to better constrain the processes controlling Si isotopic fractionation. The main questions I would like to answer in this extended project are:
1) Is the Si isotopic fractionation controlled genetically in benthic sponges?
2) Do environmental changes impact the Si isotopic fractionation of benthic sponges?
