Inter-element variation in the bone histology of Anteosaurus (Dinocephalia, Anteosauridae) from the Tapinocephalus Assemblage Zone of the Karoo Basin of South Africa
It is likely that Anteosaurus may have been more terrestrial as its osteology point towards terrestriality, but it may have occasionally inhabited ephemeral pools like modern semi-aquatic Hippopotamus. Expand
Reconstructing life history traits from bone histology in extant and fossil ruminants
La remodelacion y reabsorcion osea puede eliminar o enmascarar los primeros LAGs depositados durante the ontogenia, y el crecimiento oseo se detiene durante el periodo adverso (pocos recursos). Expand

The influence of plane of section on the identification of bone tissue types in amniotes with implications for paleophysiological inferences
This study analyzes femoral transverse mid‐diaphyseal thin sections of 14 extant and extinct taxa and the corresponding longitudinal sections for comparative purposes to test in a variety of amniotes how reliably WB content can be measured using transverse sections. Expand
Fingerprinting snakes: paleontological and paleoecological implications of zygantral growth rings in Serpentes
Study of a diverse sample of Recent henophidian snakes confirms that annual growth cycles (AGCs) visible on the surface of the vertebral zygantrum correspond to lines of arrested growth in osteohistological thin sections and accordingly reflect chronological age. Expand
Chemical archives in fishes beyond otoliths: A review on the use of other body parts as chronological recorders of microchemical constituents for expanding interpretations of environmental, ecological, and life‐history changes
An assessment of the use of bony endoskeleton, fin spines, fin rays, scales, and eye lenses as alternatives or complements to fish otolith analysis is provided. Expand
Osteology of a perinatal aristonectine (Plesiosauria; Elasmosauridae)
Abstract Perinatal specimens give valuable information about the first stages of vertebrate ontogeny. Here, the morphology and palaeohistology of an aristonectine perinatal specimen from SeymourExpand
Mammalian bone palaeohistology: a survey and new data with emphasis on island forms
The bone tissue and the skeletochronological data of the sampled island species suggest the presence of various modes of bone histological modification and mammalian life history evolution on islands to depend on factors of island evolution such as island size, distance from mainland, climate, phylogeny, and time of evolution.

Transition of Eocene Whales from Land to Sea: Evidence from Bone Microstructure
This study highlights the strong need for homologous sections in comparative microanatomical studies, and the importance of combining information from several bones of the same taxon for improved functional interpretation. Expand
Évolution et diversité des structures minéralisées chez les sélaciens : approche paléo-développementale
