9780126246506: Theory and Application of Tracers (Isotopic Techniques in Plant, Soil, and Aquatic Biology)

Covering a broader range of techniques than the first two volumes in this series, Theory and Application of Tracers is required reading for all students and researchers interested in the use of isotopes to solve research problems in the biological and earth sciences. It convincingly demonstrates that isotope techniques may be applied to a wide range of disciplines and problems areas. Theory and Application of Tracers covers fundamental methods for the use of isotopes in environmental biology, plant physiology, marine chemistry, soil science, isotope geochemistry, and related disciplines. It outlines many elements and techniques, presents examples, and gives extensive literature references. This volume also emphasizes current applications such as global change and other interdisciplinary studies.
