A two-day workshop aimed at celebrating the 25th anniversary of foundation of the Stable Isotope Laboratory (LABISE) in the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) was held at Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil, on September 2015, coinciding with the 25th Meeting of the Brazilian Academy of Science. One full day was mainly devoted to granite petrology and related subjects, when themes related to petrology and isotope geology were the main focus. The following day assumed a multidisciplinary character including themes related to biology, chemistry, statistics, isotope geology and tectonics. Geologists from different Brazilian Universities and from Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Cameroon, Denmark and United States figured among keynote speakers in this event.
A short summary on the LABISE emphasizing highlights of its 25 years of activities, and a selection of PDF´s of publications including articles, book chapters, books, specials issues, full papers published in Proceedings of events and extended abstracts are found in this CD-ROM.
A large number of the PDF´s available here partially resulted from exhaustive work done by Mariucha Maria Correia de Lima, Daysi Araújo de Lima and Natan Silva Pereira to whom we are deeply thankful.
