Modern tools of paleoecological and ecomorphological research have enabled researchers to reconstruct the lifeways of extinct species more thoroughly than ever before. We apply a variety of tools in an attempt to reconstruct the diets of the extinct archaeolemurids of Madagascar. Our data include dental use wear (examined across species and across ontogenetic series of single species), enamel microstructure, enamel thickness, and δ13C. The data are complemented by field data on the… CONTINUE READING
