One spinoff project of the LINX experiment that was very successful was a study of unionid mussels I did at the Michigan site. This work got me interested in modeling the response of organisms to isotope enrichment, so I ran a workshop at a conference around this and the LINX work. This really cemented an interest in the use of stable isotopes to examine food webs. I would apply this later working for EPA on contaminant cycling in a food web. Products include: Raikow and Hamilton 2001.
