The ([delta][sup.13]C range among the resident freshwater fishes suggest, not surprisingly, that both autochthonous and allochthonous
production contribute to carbon fixation in this tidal freshwater stream.
These papers clearly demonstrated the allochthonous
character of ophiolites and emphasized their diversity along the same orogenic belt.
Cracked, irregular, and splinter-shaped garnet grains, similar to the findings from allochthonous
breccias inside the crater (Konsa et al.
Thus, unless there are inputs of allochthonous
materials, an organic-mineral soil cannot form and almost pure organic matter accumulates directly on the limestone (slabs or massive outcrops) or between calcareous gravels (rock fragments or slope colluvia).
Therefore, experimental manipulation of terrestrial detrital inputs over multiple years represents an approach that allows assessment of terrestrial-aquatic linkages between allochthonous
detritus and animal communities at the ecosystem level.
and autochthonous particulate organic
superior vegetables' resources include: leaves, stalks, roots, fruits and seeds.
Likewise, none of the inferred possible klippen (Big Hill, Beinn Bhreagh, Murray Mountain) display any expression in the gravity data, also suggestive of an allochthonous
nature for these blocks.
The first hypothesis considers all Patagonia, including the Somuncura Massif, to be allochthonous
with respect to Western Gondwana during Paleozoic times (see Ramos 1984, 2008 for a review of these studies).
This frontal thrust brings to the surface allochthonous
Cambrian to Quaternary sedimentary units which have been thrusted southward over Quaternary deposits of autochthonous foreland basin (Crawford 1974; Seeber and Armbruster 1979).
Lithologically, the allochthonous
unit is mostly composed of sandstone, siltstone, greensand, siliceous mudstone, argillaceous micritic limestone, and rare coal measures, along with dispersed organic matter.
