Abstract

The AA. analyze tooth enamel from feral horses from a temperate climate : Shackleford Banks, North Carolina (USA). Enamel δC 13 values are compared with the values of local plants. Enamel δO 18 values are compared with values of surface water samples and with analyses of the δO 18 values of precipitation at nearby Hatteras, North Carolina. The variability of both δO 18 and the δC 13 values among individuals within this population demonstrates that horses from relatively homogenous temperate environments can display a wide range of isotopic values
