Product Details

Near fine hardcover with very minor bumped corners.Tracking Animal Migration with Stable Isotopes, Second Edition provides a complete introduction to new and powerful isotopic tools and applications to track animal migration, reviewing where isotope tracers fit in the modern toolbox of tracking methods. Assuming the reader has little familiarity with stable isotopes, it provides the necessary background information to allow scientists to understand and apply this technique to a broad range of migration scenarios in terrestrial and aquatic systems. The work summarizes the most cutting-edge developments in the field that are revolutionizing the way migrant individuals and populations are assigned to their true origins, noting how isotope approaches have transformed the way the forensics of animal movements are investigated. It allows undergraduate and graduate students and non-specialist scientists to adopt and apply isotopes to migration research, and also serves as a useful reference for scientists in universities and government laboratories. Students and researchers can use Tracking Animal Migration with Stable Isotopes as a guide for study design through data interpretation, including the use of freely available software and provided examples.
