Abstract Stable isotopes of oxygen and carbon extracted from fossil land snail shells have been used increasingly to interpret past environments. To evaluate the utility of this approach for low-latitude oceanic islands, populations of the modern helicid land snail Theba geminata – a species also abundant in the Quaternary fossil record of the region – were sampled at ten low altitude ( δ D and − 2‰ (V-SMOW) for δ 18 O, ranging from − 11‰ to + 2‰ (V-SMOW) and from − 2.6‰ to − 0.7‰ (V-SMOW… Expand
