Palaeodietary traits of large mammals from the middle Miocene of Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina)
TLDR
The palaeodietary traits of the fossil mammals suggest a closed canopy-like environment, which is supported by the fossil plant assemblage, and palaeopalynological data confirm the omnipresence of fleshy fruit-bearing plants, herbaceous taxa, as well as grasses, which justifies the seasonal fruit browsing, the common “dirty browsing”, and the occasional grazing behaviour visualized for some of the Fossil mammals from Gračanica.
Dental microwear patterns of extant and extinct Muridae (Rodentia, Mammalia): ecological implications
TLDR
Dental microwear is investigated for specimens of 17 extant species of murine and deomyine rodents in order to test the reliability of this method and infer dietary preferences on the fossil species Saïdomys afarensis.

Predormancy omnivory in European cave bears evidenced by a dental microwear analysis of Ursus spelaeus from Goyet, Belgium
TLDR
A dental microwear analysis of 43 young and adult individuals demonstrates that cave bears from Goyet were generalist omnivores during the predormancy period, which is consistent with current data on the dietary ecology of extant bears during this season and raises questions about the ecological role and causes of the extinction of cave bears.
Large mammal ecology in the late Middle Miocene Gratkorn locality (Austria)
TLDR
Most of the larger mammals from GratKorn were not permanent residents of the area around Gratkorn but rather inhabited a wider area, most likely including the Styrian Basin and the higher altitudes of the Eastern Alps’ palaeozoic basement.
Opportunistic Feeding Strategy for the Earliest Old World Hypsodont Equids: Evidence from Stable Isotope and Dental Wear Proxies
TLDR
Together dental wear and stable isotope analysis enables refined palaeodietary reconstructions in C3 ecosystems and illustrates a new example of the Liem’s paradox.
Dietary preferences and autecology of a basal Holarctic ground squirrel Spermophilinus (Rodentia: Sciuridae: Xerinae), inferred from dental microwear analysis
TLDR
A dental microwear analysis of S. bredai, the type species of the genus, based on the m3 specimens from the early late Miocene locality Grytsiv in western Ukraine, suggests that the diet of this ground squirrel has presumably consisted of hard fruit and seeds with no evidence of significant grass consumption or burrowing behaviour.

Dietary characterization of the hominoid Khoratpithecus (Miocene of Thailand): evidence from dental topographic and microwear texture analyses
TLDR
Dental topographic and microwear texture analyses suggest that the two fossil species of Khoratpithecus were better adapted to a diet of fruits than to one of leaves, much like the living orangutan or chimpanzee.
Dental microwear of the late Miocene bovids of northern Greece: Vallesian/Turolian environmental changes and disappearance of Ouranopithecus macedoniensis?
TLDR
The bovids of the late Vallesian "Ravin de la Pluie" locality show a dental microwear pattern similar to that of the extant grazers, which attests to the presence of open landscapes with an important grassy herbaceous layer in northern Greece during theLate Vallesian.
Molar microwear pattern and palaeoecology of ungulates from La Berbie (Dordogne, France): environment of Neanderthals and modern human populations of the Middle/Upper Palaeolithic
TLDR
The results suggest that during the Middle/Upper Palaeolithic transition the habitat of Neanderthals and modern human populations in southwestern France was an open environment dominated by a rich C3-monocot herbaceous layer.

TLDR
Recon reconstructs the diets of European Miocene catarrhines by examining microscopic use-wear on their teeth, and identifies variation among these primates such that O. macedoniensis and Pliopithecus platydon probably more often used their front teeth in the ingestion of small or angular abrasives than did other primates studied.
