Accurately predicting errors related to preservation, lipid extraction, and lipid normalization on chemical tracers would enable the use of archived samples in long-term studies of trophic ecology and habitat use of aquatic species. We determined whether stable carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios and concentrations of 14 trace elements can be accurately predicted from dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)-preserved mammal skin, which would provide equivalent estimates to that from unpreserved tissue. We… CONTINUE READING
