Abstract Summarises most common limitations of stable-isotope analysis as applied to ecology in context of seabird biology. Includes mean discrimination factors for carbon and nitrogen stable isotopic ratios in seabird tissues based on lipid-free fish diet for king, Humboldt and rockhopper penguins.
