Applying tribology to teeth of hoofed mammals.
Mammals inhabit all types of environments and have evolved chewing systems capable of processing a huge variety of structurally diverse food components. Surface textures of cheek teeth should thus… Expand

3D dental microtexture analysis is a powerful tool for reconstructing the diets of extinct primates. This method is based on the comparison of fossils with extant species of known diet. The diets of… Expand
Priapulid worms: Pioneer horizontal burrowers at the Precambrian-Cambrian boundary
The major evolutionary events that characterize the Precambrian–Cambrian transition are accompanied by profound ecological changes in the composition of benthic communities, the nature of the… Expand

Smelting activities are one of the most common sources of trace elements in the environment. The aim of this study was to determine the lead distribution in upper horizons (0-5 and 5-10cm) of acidic… Expand
Indications for a dietary change in the extinct Bovid genus Myotragus (Plio-Holocene, Mallorca, Spain)
- Daniela E. Winkler, E. Schulz, Ivan Calandra, Juan-Pablo Gailer, C. Landwehr, Thomas M. Kaiser
- Geography, Biology
Abstract Evolution in isolated island has shaped a variety of endemic taxa with outstanding characteristics. Amongst them is the extinct bovid genus Myotragus, endemic to Mallorca and Menorca Island,… Expand
Dietary divergence in space and time – Lessons from the dwarf-goat Myotragus balearicus (Pleisto-Holocene, Mallorca, Spain)
Newly colonised, isolated habitats, like islands, provide diverse niches to be filled and are prone to facilitate ecological separation which might lead to an adaptive radiation. Examples of such… Expand
