Oxygen isotopic compositions ([delta][sup.18][O.sub.carb]) of pedogenic carbonates reflect both the temperature of precipitation and [delta][sup.18]O composition of the fluid that the carbonates crystallized from (e.g., [14]), and as a result, have been used to reconstruct both of those variables by assuming the other, through an independent constraint on one variable or other, and more recently, through the use of "clumped isotope" measurements, which produce temperatures that are independent of the starting fluid isotopic composition.

In the present study, thirty-nine glass samples were analysed from the isotopic and chemical points of view.
Here we present an alternative method of isotope analysis that could overcome a number of constraints and therefore has potential for wider adoption of isotopic techniques as part of AW-IPM programs.
In this study, isotopic turnover rates, discrimination factors, and C:N ratios were used as indicators of diet performance and nutrient assimilation of larvae in relation to their diet (Roth & Hobson 2000.

We examined the isotopic niche of Arctic Terns during these critical early periods of their breeding season, as well as their trophic ecology in winter, after Arctic Terns have migrated to the Antarctic Ocean (Egevang et al., 2010; Fijn et al., 2013).
Researchers have previously found that diatoms and sponges (which build their skeletons from silica) gradually buried in ocean sediments since the last ice age have a different silicon isotopic signature to their modern-day relatives.
