Specialized Insectivory: Beetle-Eating and Moth-Eating Molossid Bats
The jaw structure and mechanics of insectivores have been little studied. An effort is made here to compare and contrast jaw characteristics of insectivorous bats with those of herbivores andExpand

Macroevolution in Microchiroptera: Recoupling morphology and ecology with phylogeny
No family of mammals has undergone a greater adaptive radiation than phyllostomid bats. Phylogeny combined with eco-morphological considerations of trophic structures can help understand thisExpand

Frugivorous and animalivorous bats (Microchiroptera): dental and cranial adaptations
The most derived fruit-eating bats have small canines, wide palates and molars with a distinctive labial rim. Paracone and metacone have moved from a dilambdodont position in the middle of the toothExpand

Nectarivorous feeding mechanisms in bats
Cranio-dental characteristics are quantified between micro- and megachiropteran nectarivores and compared with microchiropteran animalivores, frugivores, and megachiropteran frugivores.Expand

Functional cranial analysis of large animalivorous bats (Microchiroptera)
Large animalivorous bats include carnivorous, piscivorous and insectivorous microchiropterans. Skull proportions and tooth morphology are examined and interpreted functionally. Four wide- faced batsExpand

Ecomorphology of Bats: Comparative and Experimental Approaches Relating Structural Design to Ecology
Introduction Interconnections between morphological design and function are central to biology; they underlie natural patterns in species distribution, phylogenetic diversifi cation, andExpand

A simple morphological predictor of bite force in rodents
Bite force was quantified for 13 species of North American rodents using a piezo-resistive sensor. Most of the species measured (11) formed a tight relationship between body mass and bite force (logExpand

Shifting Distributional Patterns of Mammals in Nebraska
New distributional records are presented for 20 species of mammals in Nebraska. The majority of these records appear to represent changes in geographic distribution rather than just better samplingExpand
