Peters, J. & Brink, J.S. 1992.Comparative postcranial osteomorphology and osteometry of springbok, Antidorcas marsupiaus (Zimmerman, 1780) and grey rhebok, Pelea capreolus (Forster, 1790) (Mammalia: Bovidae). Navors. nas. Mu&, Bloemfontein 8(4): 161-207. A key for the osteomorphological distinction between thc postcranial skeleton of springbok, Antidorcas marsupiaus (Zimmerman, 1780) and grey rhebok, Pelea capreolus (Forster, 1790) has been developcd and is presented here. Bone remains of these… 
Late quaternary extinction of ungulates in Sub-Saharan Africa
Abstract Comparative osteomorphology and statistical analysis of postcranial limb bone measurements of modern African wildebeest (Connochaetes), eland (Taurotragus) and African buffalo (Syncerus)
ECOMORPHOLOGICAL DIVERSITY AMONG PALEOGENE HYRACOIDS (MAMMALIA): A NEW CURSORIAL BROWSER FROM THE FAYUM, EGYPT
TLDR
Functional inferences derived from features suggest a cursorial browser, a Paleogene analog to the bovids that do not appear in Africa until the Miocene, and further underscores that hyracoids were the dominant terrestrial ungulates of the African Paleogene.

TLDR
The inferred occupation history of BPA is consistent with the hypothesis that both MSA and LSA human populations were concentrated on the submerged coastline from ~60,000 to ~20,000 years ago, and changes in ungulate diversity indicate that effective precipitation was highest during the LGM, corresponding with an intensified winter rainfall system.
Robusticity of Bovidae skeletal elements from southern Africa and their potential in species identification
Faunal analysis is crucial in the investigation of the complexity of caves and archaeological sites. Osteological measurements are often used for human remains as a means of identification, and can
The evolution of the black wildebeest, Connochaetes gnou, and modern largemammal faunas in central Southern Africa
This study investigates the evolution of modern mammalian faunas in the central interior of southern Africa by testing the hypothesis that the evolution of the black wildebeest, Connochaetes gnou,
A Fossil History of Southern African Land Mammals
There is an ever-growing wealth of mammalian fossil material being collected from palaeontological and archaeological sites in southern Africa. This reference provides comprehensive information on
Phenotypic differences, spatial distribution and diversity at the Cytb and BMP4 genes in springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis)
The springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) is a significant contributor to the economically important game ranching sector in Southern Africa. Phenotypic variation between springbok from the Karoo and

Almost a chest hit: An aurochs humerus with hunting lesion from Göbekli Tepe, south-eastern Turkey, and its implications
Abstract An aurochs right humerus with a fragment of an embedded projectile point was discovered during excavations at early Neolithic Gobekli Tepe in south-eastern Turkey. Evidence for hunting
Reply to Horsburgh et al. 2016: ‘Revisiting the Kalahari debate in the highlands.’

Osteomorphological differences in the appendicular skeleton of Antidorcas marsupialis (Zimmerman, 1780) and Antidorcas bondi (Cooke & Wells, 1951) (Mammalia, Bovidae) with notes on the osteometry of Antidorcas bondi
TLDR
The osteometry of A. bondi indicates that this animal was shorter and sturdier than A. marsupialis, and features of the distal radius, femur, and tibia are not always reliable when considered singly, and should rather be used in combination.

TLDR
Osseous remains of these medium sized antelopes are often encountered in African late Quaternary archaeological sites, but their specific identification poses considerable problems to the archaeozoologist.
Observations on the Behaviour and Feeding Habits of the Springbok, Antidorcas Marsupialis
AbstractThe stance and attitudes of the springbok are found to be similar to those of other gazelles. Gaits used are a rack-like walk (passgang), a trot and a gallop; display trot, the stott and the
USE OF MINERALISED WATER BY KALAHARI WILDLIFE AND ITS EFFECTS ON HABITATS
TLDR
It is suggested that, at the present level of knowledge, mobile wildebeest populations can be stabilised by the provision of relatively potable water, and mineralised water may be used to raise the levels of springbok, hartebeest and gemsbok populations.
Grasses grazed by springbok and sheep
TLDR
Grazing habits were determined by analysis of rumina from slaughtered Springbok and sheep whore together with Merino sheep in False Upper Karoo and together with Dorper sheep in Kalahari Thornveld, showing competition exists for two of the commonest grasses on one farm and for fivegrasses on the other.
Food selection by grey rhebuck in the Orange Free State
TLDR
Ten faecal samples of grey rhebuck Pelea capreolus were collected quarterly in the south-eastern Orange Free State and microscopic analysis indicated that the diet consisted of ca 88% dicotyledons and ca 10% monocotYledons throughout the year.
