BODY MASS ESTIMATIONS IN LUJANIAN (LATE PLEISTOCENE-EARLY HOLOCENE OF SOUTH AMERICA) MAMMAL MEGAFAUNA
In this paper a data base is initiated, with the body mass estimations for a number of xenarthran and epitherian species of the Lujanian Land Mammal Age (late Pleis- tocene - early Holocene of SouthExpand

Ulnar dimensions and fossoriality in armadillos
Ulnar dimensions were measured in 14 species of armadillos (Xenarthra: Dasypodidae). An index of fossorial ability (IFA) was constructed, relating the length of the olecranon process to the remainingExpand
