-Accurate paleoecological inferences from the elemental composition of human and faunal bone recovered from archaeological and paleontological sites will depend on controls for postmortem diagenesis. In vivo chemical signatures in bone can be obscured by postmortem changes in the soil environment. Models addressing the fossilization process in bone must consider both ionic substitution and mineralization mechanisms of diagenesis. Current solubility profile techniques for the differentiation of… CONTINUE READING
