Isotopic Biogeochemistry (δ13C, δ15N) of Cave Bear (Ursus spelaeus) from Cova Eiros Site, Lugo
Download Full Text
The Cova Eiros site (Galicia, Spain) has been studied using the Stable Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (SIRMS) technique. Bones from adult, juvenile and neonate bears have been analysed in order to measure their δ13C and δ15N. It has been observed great variability in that values, becuse of the sample characterization, can only be explained by physiological reasons. The palaeodietary and palaeoenvironmental results can be compared to others obtained for several Cave Bear european populations.
