Palaeoenvironmental and Palaeodietary Implications of Isotopic Biogeochemistry of Last Interglacial Neanderthal and Mammal Bones in Scladina Cave (Belgium)
Abstract Une etude isotopique d’os de mammiferes du Pleistocene superieur interglaciaire de la couche 4 de la grotte Scladina (Sclayn, Belgique) a demontre la bonne qualite de conservation duExpand
New isotopic evidence for dietary habits of Neandertals from Belgium.
Palaeodiet of Mesolithic and Neolithic populations of Meuse Basin (Belgium): evidence from stable isotopes
The human diet was investigated using the carbon and nitrogen isotopic signatures of 93 Mesolithic and Neolithic specimens (w10,000e 2000 BC) from the Meuse Basin (Belgium). During the AncientExpand
Dental evidence for ontogenetic differences between modern humans and Neanderthals
Humans have an unusual life history, with an early weaning age, long childhood, late first reproduction, short interbirth intervals, and long lifespan. In contrast, great apes wean later, reproduceExpand
Land use patterns and types of common vole (Microtus arvalis) population kinetics
Abstract Various observed patterns of common vole ( Microtus arvalis ) population kinetics have been classified into five types according to two criteria: the time period of changes in abundanceExpand
Variation in enamel thickness within the genus Homo.
Recent humans and their fossil relatives are classified as having thick molar enamel, one of very few dental traits that distinguish hominins from living African apes. However, little is known aboutExpand
Rapid dental development in a Middle Paleolithic Belgian Neanderthal
The evolution of life history (pace of growth and reproduction) was crucial to ancient hominin adaptations. The study of dental development facilitates assessment of growth and development in fossilExpand

Dental tissue proportions and enamel thickness in Neandertal and modern human molars.
The thickness of dental enamel is often discussed in paleoanthropological literature, particularly with regard to differences in growth, health, and diet between Neandertals and modern humans.Expand
New data on the late Neandertals: direct dating of the Belgian Spy fossils.
In Eurasia, the period between 40,000 and 30,000 BP saw the replacement of Neandertals by anatomically modern humans (AMH) during and after the Middle to Upper Paleolithic transition. The humanExpand
