Abstract

The natural abundance of stable carbon isotope values (δ13C) of organic matter of marine macroalgae collected from Taiwan and its offshore islands (Penghu Islands) were analyzed in this study. These values ranged from -10.5 to -29.5‰. The highest δ13C value came from green algae (-10.5‰), Ulva pertusa while most algae exhibited values in the -14 to -19‰ range. On average, the δ13C values of red algae (-17.7‰) are slightly more negative than those of green (-16.5‰) and brown (-13.6‰) algae. The carbon isotope record from organic matter of marine algae and its implications for marine algae physiology are also discussed.
