Among the topics are the nitrogen isotopic analysis of dissolved inorganic and organic nitrogen in soil extracts, the role of meiofauna in deep-sea benthic food webs revealed by carbon and nitrogen stable isotope analysis, fish scales as a record of atmospheric change, estimating transpiration from the oxygen isotope composition of leaf organic matter, and an improved method for the precise determination of carbon isotopic composition of amino acids.
A number of field studies are available to the interested reader that demonstrate the powerful application of stable isotope analysis to distinguish between multiple sources of groundwater contamination within a plume by analyzing isotopic compositions from samples taken in the vicinity of suspected source zones.
The application of stable isotope analysis in animal ecology, however elegant and technologically simple, is nevertheless fraught with several heuristic difficulties, primarily stemming from uncertain variation in isotopic discrimination based on many physiological processes.
