  • ABSTRACT Based on the assumptions that human food is available for dogs and isotope diet–tissue differences are similar in dogs and humans, the ‘canine surrogacy approach’ (CSA) has been used to infer patterns of ancient populations. The goal of this study was to test the CSA in urban (Brasília and Piracicaba) and in rural (Ubatuba and Maraã) areas. The hair C and N isotope ratios of modern dogs were compared with those of human fingernails from different regions of Brazil. Our CSA results… CONTINUE READING
