Stable isotope composition of the Miocene Dinaride Lake System deduced from its endemic mollusc fauna

Abstract

The aragonite shells of 55 mollusc specimens from the late Early and early Middle Miocene of two palaeolakes of the Dinaride Lake System (DLS) are analysed for their δ18O and δ13C signatures. The data set has a bimodal distribution with a prominent peak between −3 and −4‰ for both isotopes and a second much weaker peak at more depleted values of c. −9 to −7… (More)
