This study investigates stable carbon and hydrogen isotope compositions of leaf wax n-alkanes from 3 angiosperm and 2 conifer species from a semi-desert natural environment. The dC and dD n-C27 alkane data show a clear distinction between Populus tremuloides/Syringa vulgaris ( 31.9 to 32.7‰ and 168 to 186‰, respectively) and Pinus sylvestris/ Picea pungens ( 28.8 to 30.6‰ and 190 to 212‰) throughout the 2005 growing season. Like the other angiosperm species, Betula pendula was D-enriched ( 162… CONTINUE READING
