Comparison of estimates of pelagic biomass.

<p>Open circles are data from the BIOTRANS station at 47°N, 20°W east of the MAR <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0061550#pone.0061550-Roe1" target="_blank">[42]</a>. The grey line is based on data from 31°17′N 25°24′ W over the Madeira Plain <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0061550#pone.0061550-Webb1" target="_blank">[43]</a>. The solid black line is the theoretical relationship derived from integrating the CoML global trend for benthic biomass as shown in <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0061550#pone-0061550-g012" target="_blank">Figure 12</a>.</p>
