Hawaii Volcanoes National Park stable isotope values from Hawaii forest birds 2012

August 17, 2020

Blood and feathers were collected from Hawaii forest birds (Apapane and Hawaii Amakihi) in high elevation forest to assess evidence for altitudinal movement. Feathers, red blood cells and plasma were analyzed for hydrogen, carbon, and nitrogen stable isotope ratios, and these were used to infer changes in elevation and diet over time. For each species, at one of 3 sites, isotope values from one or more tissues and isotopes are listed.
