Discoveries with Stable Isotopes: Tracing the paths of crime, culture and climate

The use of stable isotopes has revolutionized fields in ecology and forensics. Stable isotopes act as natural tracers that can allow us to determine the diets of ancient humans, the movement of illegal drugs and counterfeit money, adulterations to food and drink, the migration of animals and the physiology of ancient trees. Join us for a discussion about stable isotopes with Professor Joy Ward at the next Science on Tap.
