A δ15N record obtained from a 1.5-m core of bat guano deposit from Zidită Cave (western Romania) provides a record of anthropogenic and climatic influence on the regional nitrogen pool. Nitrogen content is nearly constant (%N>9) for over 1m of the core, indicating limited diagenesis. The δ15N and δ13C time series are com ...
