Carbon and nitrogen isotopic analysis of Pleistocene mammals from the Saltville Quarry (Virginia, USA): Implications for trophic relationships

Abstract

The late Rancholabrean (N10,000 years ago) Saltville Quarry in Virginia, USA preserves a community of basal herbivores, including several families of giant mammals, representing a range of potential feeding strategies (browsers versus grazers) and digestive mechanisms (ruminants versus non-ruminants). In this study, carbon and nitrogen isotopic analysis of… (More)
