Timing of isotopic integration in marine mammal skull: comparative study between calcified tissues.

Abstract

RATIONALE Tissues with different turnover rates have different isotope compositions and reflect the different periods in an animal's life when the isotopes are incorporated during the growth of tissues. Bone is one of the most used tissues for reconstruction of an animal's diet; however, the time of isotope integration remains unknown for many species… (More)
