Finlay Global dataset for carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios of lotic periphyton Received: 7 February 2018 / Accepted: 11 May 2018 The Ecological Society of Japan 2018 Abstract Carbon and nitrogen stable isotope ratios (d C to + 22.6&, respectively. The dataset also includes and d N) have been widely employed in food web physicochemical factors (altitude, coordinates, catch- analysis. In lotic environments, periphyton is a major ment area, width, depth, geology, vegetation, canopy primary producer that makes a large contribution to coverage, biome, season, presence of anadromous sal- food web production as well as carbon and nitrogen mon, temperature, pH, current velocity, and discharge), 13 15 cycling. While the d C and d N values have many nutrient data (nitrate and ammonium concentrations), advantages as a natural tracer, the controls over their and algal attributes (chlorophyll a concentration, algal high spatial and temporal variability in stream peri- species compositions, and carbonates removal) in phyton are not well known. Here, we present the global streams/rivers studied, all of which may help interpret 13 15 13 15 dataset of d C and d N values of lotic periphyton from the d Cand d N values of periphyton.
