Amino acids and stable carbon isotope distributions in Taihu Lake, China, over the last 15,000 years, and their paleoecological implications

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Amino acid, organic nitrogen, and stable carbon isotope (C 13/C 12) profiles through a core from East Taihu Lake are interpreted in terms of paleoecology and paleoclimate over the last 15,000 yr. The average δ C 13 values from a core from West Taihu Lake are evidently higher than values from East Taihu Lake, showing that East Taihu Lake sediments are related to heterotrophic carbon sources from the watershed. The western part of Taihu Lake, by contrast, has been a lacustrine environment since 11,000 yr B.P., earlier than East Taihu Lake
