Looking to the past to ensure the future of the world's oldest living vertebrate: Isotopic evidence for multi-decadal shifts in trophic ecology of the Australian lungfish

Olden, Julian; Fallon, Stewart; Roberts, David; Espinoza, Thomas; Kennard, Mark

Description

Meeting the conservation challenges of long‐lived animal species necessitate long‐ term assessments of trophic ecology. The use of dietary proxies, such as ratios of naturally occurring stable isotopes in animal tissues demonstrating progressive growth, has shown considerable promise to reconstruct trophic histories of long‐ lived organisms experiencing environmental change. Here, we combine innovative radiocarbon scale‐ageing techniques with stable isotope analysis of carbon and nitrogen...[Show more]
