The fatty acid profile and stable isotope ratios of C and N of muscle from cattle that grazed grass or grass/clover pastures before slaughter and their discriminatory potential

examined in this regard ( Monahan et al ., 2013 ; Moloney et al ., 2014 ). Beef from cattle finished on pasture or concentrates could be distinguished based on their fatty acid composition ( Alfaia et al ., 2009 ) or stable isotope ratios ( Osorio et al ., 2011 ). However, no studies have been reported on discriminating between beef from cattle finished on different pastures, even though grass-only versus grass/clover pasturing will likely receive different sustainability and environmental ratings from consumers in the future (Broom et al ., 2013). Accordingly, our

Using light stable isotopes to understand nutrient cycling in soils and how these isotopic techniques can be leveraged to investigate the ecology and biology of insects – A review

1 Stable isotopes The modern view of subatomic structure includes a veritable “nuclear zoo” of particles and forces, and in this context, it is sufficient to view atoms simply as being composed of a positively charged nucleus surrounded by shells of negatively charged (orbital) electrons. The nucleus contains protons and neutrons as its major components of mass. A proton carries a positive (elementary) charge and a neutron has no charge. An isotope of an element has the same atomic number (protons) but a different number of neutrons, leading to a different
