Abstract [en]

1. Methanogenic carbon can be incorporated by methane-oxidising bacteria, leading to a 13C-depleted stable carbon isotopic composition (d13C) of chironomids that feed on these microorganisms. This has been shown for the chironomid tribe Chironomini, but very little information is available about the d13C of other abundant chironomid groups and the relationship between chironomid d13C and methane production in lakes.
