Dear colleagues,


We are currently working on a project using stable isotopes (𝛿13C and 𝛿18O) in tree-ring cellulose and are looking for opinions on freeze-drying versus air drying versus oven drying (post cellulose-extraction, pre-isotopic analysis) with respect to consequences for the preservation of cellulose isotopic compositions. To the best of my knowledge, there is no published literature comparing these methods.
