Bat guano δ13C and δ15N values as climate proxy

Ferenc L. FORRAY et al.


The aim of the present study is to demonstrate the usefulness of stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes in bat guano as proxies for paleoclimate changes. We show a 2500-year record of environmental change in Romania using δ13C, δ15N, and (C:N) derived from precisely 14C-dated bat guano cores recovered from Gaura cu Musca (GM), Zidită (ZC), and Magurici (MC) caves
