Stable Isotope Theory and Methods (Biol 540) Spring 2021

Tu, Th 10:35 – 11:50

Course Description: Students will learn to design, interpret, and critically evaluate the use of stable isotopic tools. Specifically, we will focus on terminology and notation, sources of variation, models of isotope composition, and key applications of stable isotope techniques. Topics address the isotopic composition of plants, animals, soils, water, food webs, advanced techniques, plus any topics of interest to students.

The course is offered online this year without the lab section. We will accommodate students enrolled this spring in future lab instruction.
