Fat as an ecological tool: bears and seals in temperate and Arctic ecosystems / Sara Iverson.

Title: Fat as an ecological tool: bears and seals in temperate and Arctic ecosystems / Sara Iverson.
Author(s): Iverson, Sara.
Date: 2004.
In: Meridian. (2004.), S/S (2004)
Abstract: Compositions and patterns of fatty acids are remarkably similar to those found in suspected diets, so concept arises of using fatty acid signatures to study diets in wild. Statistical model and simulation were checked against captive grey seals and tracked wild harbour seals; these are being extended to other seal species, sea lions and polar bears.
