For many ecological applications of stable carbon isotope techniques, it is necessary to separate the lipid and lipid-free fractions. The effect of different lipid extraction methods on the isotope signature of the remaining lipid-free matter as well as the lipid fraction was tested. A hot extraction form of the Soxhlet method using petrol-ether was compared with two liquid-liquid extraction methods for lipid determination described by Bligh and Dyer and Smedes. Solid samples of fish and… CONTINUE READING
