Carbon and nitrogen stable isotopic offsets between diet and hair/feces in captive chimpanzees.

Stable isotope analyses have been used for dietary reconstruction of
several wildlife species. It is important to estimate isotopic differences
(offsets) between tissues and diet in the target species for the precise
reconstruction. Although the number of stable isotopic studies of wild
chimpanzees are increasing, the isotopic offsets in chimpanzees have never
been reported. In this study, stable carbon and nitrogen isotopic offsets of
hairs and feces in 13 adult chimpanzees kept at KUPRI were presented.
