BARROW’S GOLDENEYE

Author(s): KEITH A. HOBSON et al.
Abstract: Naturally occurring stable isotopes in foodwebs can be used to determine the relative contributions of endogenous and exogenous nutrients to avian eggs in cases where birds move between isotopically distinct biomes or habitats to breed. We measured 1..[more]..
