AbstractInvestigates whether stable isotype ratios in marsh plants can serve as indicators of increased nitrogen from wastewater. For most species, including Iva frutescens, there was a significant relationship between delta N-15 and increasing wastewater nitrogen. The delta N-15 of Iva frutescens seems to be an indicator of local inputs near the upland border.
