A continuous stable isotope record of last interglacial age from the Bulgarian Cave Orlova Chuka

corresponding to all data points inside the 2σ error band ( Hercman and Pawlak, 2012 ). Stable isotopes The samples used for stable isotope analyses were drilled using a Dremel with a drill bit diameter of 0.5 mm. All samples for isotopic profile were taken directly from axial part of stalagmite at approximately 2.0 ± 0.2 mm increments from the stalagmite base at 0 mm to the discontinuity at 1,630 mm, producing 798 samples. Additionally, four profiles were sampled along the growing layers at different distances from the stalagmite base, i.e ., profile I at 122 ± 0.2 mm

Climatic signals in tree-ring width and stable isotopes composition of Pinus sylvestris L. Growing in the industrialized area nearby Kędzierzyn-Koźle

response of pines to individual climate factors (temperature, sunshine, precipitation, air humidity) has been observed (for example Sensula et al ., 2015a , 2015b ). The climate changes and industrial pollutant emissions occur during physiological processes responsible for plant growth and also can influence stable isotope composition of wood and its components ( Craig, 1954 ; Farquhar and Lloyd, 1993 ; McCarroll and Loader, 2004 ; Sensuła, 2015 ). There has been much discussion about the biological effects of pollutant pressure on trees, which concerned yearly

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

Stable Isotopes (H, C, S) and the Origin of Baltic Amber

Stable Isotopes (H, C, S) and the Origin of Baltic Amber

New results of isotope analysis of light elements (H, C and S) of a dozen Baltic amber samples are described and discussed. Carbon isotope composition was nearly constant (ca. -23‰), whereas sulphur and hydrogen varied in their isotope compositions from +4 to -28‰ and from -171 to -213‰, respectively. The formation and subsequent evolution of this material since its origin in Paleogene time until present is outlined.
