COURSE: Introduction to Isotopic Ecology for the Study of Marine Mammals

This course will be delivered by Drs Seth D Newsome (UNM, USA), Luciana Riccialdelli (CADIC-CONICET), Damián G Vales (CESIMAR-CONICET), and Rocío Loizaga (CESIMAR-CONICET) in Puerto Madryn, Chubut, Patagonia Argentina, from 8th – 12th November 2019.

The course is intended to anyone using stable isotope analysis to study marine mammals' ecology.

Course overview:
The course will cover the theoretical concepts that underlie the application of stable isotopes as natural tracers for the study of the ecology of marine mammals. The use of different sampling designs, data collection, and sample preparations in accordance to the research question posed will be addressed. The use of specific software for the statistical analysis of isotopic results and their corresponding interpretation will also be taught. Finally, the course will cover an introduction to the ecological application of compound-specific stable 15N and 13C isotope analysis of amino acids. Participants are encouraged to bring their own data sets and problems to discuss during the course.

Language: The course will be taught in English (SDN) and in Spanish (LR, DGV, RL).

Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 35 people, and the course will cost 2,500 ARS per person.
