This variation may be due to variation in the experimental diets and particularly due to differences in of the protein and non-protein components in those diets (Ambrose and Norr 1993). Stable Isotope Values in Bone and Hair Twenty-four hair samples were analyzed for stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen. All of those same individuals were analyzed for in bone colla- gen and nine were analyzed for The difference between in bone collagen and hair (mean collagen value minus mean hair value) is for the 24 samples.
