This book highlights new and emerging uses of stable isotope analysis in a variety of ecological disciplines. While the use of natural abundance isotopes in ecological research is now relatively standard, new techniques and ways of interpreting patterns are developing rapidly.

The book approaches the use of isotopes from the perspective of ecological and biological research, but its concepts can be applied within other disciplines.

A novel, step-by-step spreadsheet modeling approach is also presented for circulating tracers in any ecological system, including any favorite system an ecologist might dream up while.

While the use of natural abundance isotopes in ecological research is now relatively standard, new techniques and ways of interpreting patterns are developing rapidly.

Stable isotopes have been also used to quantify the contribution of different food sources in the diet of an organism. Stable isotope mixing models (SIMM) have been proposed to reconstruct consumer diets, by assessing the proportions of food sources assimilated by a consumer (not just ingested by the consumer).

Ecological researchers use mixing. The analysis of stable isotope ratios represents one of the most exciting new technical advances in environmental sciences. In this book, leading experts offer the first survey of applications of stable isotope analysis to ecological research. Stable Isotope Ecology provides a solid introduction to this advanced subject, and can also be used as an instructive review for more experienced researchers and professionals.

1 Stable isotope chemistry and measurement: a primer, 1 Elizabeth W. Sulzman Introduction, 1 What isotopes are, what makes them distinct, 1 Properties of ecologically useful stable isotopes, 11 Technological advances and current trends in the ecological use of isotopes, 14 Acknowledgments, 18 References, Ecological applications of stable isotopes were pioneered by geochemists in studies of global element cycles and past climatic conditions.

Later, work using stable isotopes in studies of photosynthesis in plants, diet and trophic levels in animals was pioneered in the s and in migration in the s.

This book, written by two of the leading researchers in the field, explains the background to stable isotope methodology and discuss the use of the methods in varying ecological situations. (source: Nielsen Book Data). For the first time, Stable Isotopes as Indicators of Ecological Change brings together a wide range of perspectives and data that speak directly to the issues of ecological change using stable isotope tracers.

The information presented originates from a range of biological and geochemical sources and from research fields within biological Author: Elsevier Science.The term stable isotope has a meaning similar to stable nuclide, but is preferably used when speaking of nuclides of a specificthe plural form stable isotopes usually refers to isotopes of the same element.

The relative abundance of such stable isotopes can be measured experimentally (isotope analysis), yielding an isotope ratio that can be used as a research tool. Stable Isotope Ecology provides a solid introduction to this advanced subject, and can also be used as an instructive review for more experienced researchers and professionals.
