Tarbagan fat, its composition and properties
The fatty-acid composition of tarbagan fat has been determined. An amount of unsaturated acids has been found in it which is unusually high for terrestrial animals. This fact is one more argument in confirmation of the validity of the climatic theory of the structure of fats due to Ivanov [9–12].
