Stable isotopes are used extensively in all areas of ecology: in studying metabolic processes, to monitor nitrogen turnover in soil, to look at pollution in rainwater, to trace elements through ecosystems, etc. This book, written by two of the leading researchers in the field, will explain the background to stable isotope methodology and discuss the use of the methods in varying ecological situations.

  • An ideal resource for all ecologists using or seeking to use isotopes in their research.
  • A complete guide to the methods, the theory behind them and their advantages and disadvantages.
  • Adopts an ecosystem approach - unlike the competition.
