NOTE: Attendance will be limited to a maximum of ~150 persons.
The goal of this meeting is to bring together a broad spectrum of scientists
engaged in ecological research that use stable isotope techniques, and to
share their ideas and state-of-the-art science with the broader scientific
The 2002 meeting is being hosted by Northern Arizona University (NAU)
located in Flagstaff, Arizona, U.S.A. The meeting venue is the duBios
Conference Center at NAU.
Who Should Attend?
*Scientists using stable isotope techniques in ecological research
*Those interested in learning about stable isotopes as an investigative tool
Oral presentations and posters are solicited that discuss important or new
findings in the application of stable isotope techniques to ecological
questions. We particularly encourage graduate student contributions and
papers that focus on stable isotope results in the following general topic
areas, among others:
* Variable scale aquatic, marine and terrestrial ecosystem studies
* Dietary and trophic studies in terrestrial, aquatic and marine systems
* Stable isotopes in nutritional ecology
* Paleodiet reconstruction in archaeological and paleoecological studies
* Stable isotopes in wildlife research
* Contaminant pathways and cumulative environmental impacts on foodwebs
* Agricultural impacts on ecosystems
* Application of compound specific isotopic analyses in ecology
* New developments or methods in stable isotope ecology
