However, unfortunately the only bone stable isotope evidence of Late Mesolithic diet in Scotland comes from Oronsay: a rather unique set of sites and a very small dataset.
Stable isotope analysis, however, provides a diagnostic means of identifying whether or not biodegradation is taking place.

In this study, we evaluate the usefulness of stable isotope analysis in investigating foraging ecology of 2 northern herbivores, moose (Alces alces) and caribou (Rangifer tarandus), based on predictions derived from the interaction between plant isotopic ecology (Table 1), diet selection of the 2 herbivores, and seasonal changes in nutritional conditions of these 2 species (Figs.
The calibration curves consisted of injected amounts of native amino acids (x-axis) vs the ratio between native amount and fixed amount of the respective stable isotope (y-axis).
As an alternative, measurement of stable isotope ratios has become widely used to define relationships between consumers and their food sources (Peterson & Fry 1987, Michener & Schell 1994, Cabana & Rasmussen 1994), and they have been applied to study foraging, migration and other life history phenomena (Hesslein et al.
