Keywords: Ostracods | Stable isotopes | Methods.

Carbon and oxygen stable isotope distribution is widely used for palaeoenvironmental studies. In the last 30 years these geochemical techniques were also applied on ostracod shells in particular for reconstruction of non-marine settings. The aim of this paper is to provide a general overview on methods applied and results obtained bystable isotope studies. Major attention will be focused on problems and advantages related to stable isotope analyses on ostracod shells.
