Sika deer in Bronze Age Guanzhong: sustainable wildlife exploitation in ancient China?
Abstract The interplay between sustainability and anthropogenic landscape transformation is crucial to understanding the past decline and eradication of wild animals. The Bronze Age site of
An analysis of threats, strategies, and opportunities for African rhinoceros conservation
TLDR
The common threats to rhinoceros conservation identified in this paper include poaching, habitat fragmentation and loss, international trade in illegal rhino products, and external shocks such as global financial recessions and pandemics.

WILD MAMMALS OF ANCIENT NORTH CHINA
Abstract Human activity has eliminated many of the natural lowland ecosystems of the Middle and Lower Yellow River Valley, and has modified the rest, making it difficult to understand what species
Long-term archives reveal shifting extinction selectivity in China's postglacial mammal fauna
TLDR
The combined zooarchaeological, palaeontological, historical and current-day datasets reveal that both phylogenetic and spatial patterns of extinction selectivity have varied through time in China, probably in response both to cumulative anthropogenic impacts and to quantitative and qualitative changes in regional pressures.
Cuticles of Lescuropteris genuina from the Stephanian (Upper Carboniferous) of Central France: evidence for a climbing growth habit
TLDR
This paper provides the first description of the cuticles of Lescuropteris genuina, a pteridosperm from the Upper Stephanian of the Blanzy-Montceau Basin, Central France, providing evidence that L.genuina had a climbing growth habit.
Ancient DNA analysis reveals woolly rhino evolutionary relationships.
Major trends in stem anatomy and growth forms in the perianth-bearing Piperales, with special focus on Aristolochia.
TLDR
It is proposed that the climbing habit of the perianth-bearing Piperales is a derived growth form, which evolved with the diversification of Aristolochia, and might have been a key feature for its diversification.
Mechanical role of the leaf sheath in rattans.
TLDR
The role of the leaf sheath in modulating mechanical properties during ontogeny ought not to be neglected in studies on monocotyledons, as it possibly contributed significantly to the ways in which different growth forms have evolved in the group.
Biomechanical Reconstruction of the Carboniferous Seed Fern Lyginopteris oldhamia: Implications for Growth Form Reconstruction and Habit
The mechanical architecture of the Carboniferous seed fern Lyginopteris oldhamia is investigated from development stages including naturally decorticated stems. The growth form shows a relatively
