The 20th century has experienced environmental changes that appear to be unprecedented in their rate and magnitude during the Earth?s history. For the first time, this special volume brings together a wide range of perspectives and data that speak directly to the issues of ecological change using stable isotope tracers. The information presented originates from a range of biological and geochemical sources and from research fields within biological, climatological and physical disciplines covering time-scales from days to centuries. Unlike any other reference, editors discuss where isotope data can detect, record, trace and help to interpret environmental change.

Of interest to ecologists, geophysicists, geologists; researchers, scientists and educated laypeople interested in environmental change, climatology, paleontology, oceanography and atmospheric science.
