Talk More[edit]

Can you tell more about it? I am researching it and want to know more. --Sam Wang 21:55, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

the limnetic, littoral, profundal, and benthic zones are part of a lakes life zones in most Ap text books. 

I agree --A concerned student —Preceding unsigned comment added by 170.235.201.27 (talk) 17:00, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm also a student trying to do research on it, and not having much luck finding sources. -- 74.47.146.128 (talk) 23:23, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

I'd imagine that there is a significant amount of precipitating organic matter/feces at that depth. We really need a section dedicated to it, citing some statistics about the downward mass flux (mass per area per time) and factors that might affect it (storms, algae blooms, schools of organisms, etc.). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.202.0.41 (talk) 02:09, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Added a section about nutrient flux. Factors are really going to depend on the depth, but overall they will be uniform when you get into discussing marine snow because it is decomposed on the way down and eaten by any larger organisms in the water column, as well as smaller ones like salps and crustaceans. When it's relatively shallow it's just going to be large detritus. Esoxidtcontribs 15:41, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
