A solid introduction to stable isotopes that can also be used as an instructive review for more experienced researchers and professionals. The book approaches the use of isotopes from the perspective of ecological and biological research, but its concepts can be applied within other disciplines. A novel, step-by-step spreadsheet modeling approach is also presented for circulating tracers in any ecological system, including any favorite system an ecologist might dream up while sitting at a computer. The author's humorous and lighthearted style painlessly imparts the principles of isotope ecology. The online material contains color illustrations, spreadsheet models, technical appendices, and problems and answers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The purpose of the book . . .is to equip researchers with the essential tools of isotope research ... . creates the basis for a graduate and post-graduate course in stable isotope ecology. ... Fry's understanding of the world of stable isotope ecology is impressive and extensive ... . Fry does an excellent job of conveying to the reader the proper use of isotopes as they circulate within the biosphere, as well as introducing the exciting world of isotope ecology." (Zachary T. Aanderud, Ecology - The Ecological Society of America, Vol. 88 (3), 2007)

"Brian Fry who has now produced a very timely contribution of eight chapters that are designed to introduce novice graduate students to the field of stable isotope ecology.... Additional resource material is supplied...figures, color versions of cartoons, and problem sets...this would make an excellent primary textbook for a graduate course and will be enjoyed by both isoPopes and isotopeteers." (Keith A. Hobson, Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 82, September, 2007)
