Abstract We investigated the potential use of intra-tooth variations of stable carbon and oxygen isotopes in hippopotamid canines to retrieve signals of seasonality in continental contexts. A high-resolution serial isotope analysis of enamel was performed on both lower and upper canines of one extant common hippopotamus from the Sarh region (Chad). We discussed three methodological points: canine growth rates, optimal sampling resolution, and record of seasonality within hippopotamid canine… CONTINUE READING
