Závěrečné pokračování příspěvku představuje řadu příkladů využití stabilních izotopů při studiu výživy a migrace lidí (např. délka kojení, konzumace kukuřice v Severní Americe, původ obyvatelstva v Bavorsku, migrace v Egyptě apod.).

The final part of this contribution presents some examples of using stable isotopes in studying food and migration patterns in human populations (e.g. length of the lactation period, maize consumption in North America, Bavarian population origin, migration in Egypt, etc.).
