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 thusExpand

Teasing apart the contributions of hard dietary items on 3D dental microtextures in primates.
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 ofExpand

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 theExpand

Lead distribution in soils impacted by a secondary lead smelter: Experimental and modelling approaches.
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 acidicExpand

Indications for a dietary change in the extinct Bovid genus Myotragus (Plio-Holocene, Mallorca, Spain)
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 suchExpand
