Predicted consumer biomass and production by location.

Estimated biomass and production of consumers of 1 to 106 g body mass by LME and FAO area as predicted with the macroecological model. Points represent median biomass estimates, coloured bars (mapped to sea surface temperature) the 25th to 75th percentiles and black lines the 5th to 95th percentiles. For corresponding absolute estimates of biomass and production see S3 Fig and for further details of the LME see S2 Table. Uncertainty intervals show the effects of parameter uncertainty in the macroecological model but do not account for structural uncertainty or uncertainty in primary production and temperature inputs.
