Summary:Oxygen isotope data are presented for phosphate and structural carbonate of modern horse tooth enamel and bone. The apparent O isotope fractionation factor between the structural carbonate and body water is 1.0263 ± 0.0014, and this is a basis for using O isotope compositions of structural carbonate in mammalian biogenic apatite for climatological and other studies.
