534 Projects

A project is a themed assortment of media and specimens. Projects can be used to share media ownership and access between project members, and projects can also be used to publish assortments of media and specimens for access and discovery by the public. Examples of projects could include the 3D data used in a single research paper or a collections digitization project. If you want to share media ownership and access with multiple users across multiple projects, consider creating a user team. Projects can be managed by teams, and users with access to that team also gain access to any projects managed by that team.

Display all details of Ecomorphological variation in artiodactyl calcanei using 3D geometric morphometrics Artiodactyl postcrania are commonly used as paleoecological indicators but these studies are usually limited to artiodactyls within a single family. Here, we use 3D geometric morphometrics to analyze the morphology of calcanei from five artiodactyl families (Antilocapridae, Bovidae, Cervidae, Giraffidae, and Tragulidae) and identify common ecological trends among these families using principal component analysis. Our results indicate that antilocaprid and some bovid calcanei show convergent evolution of cursorial morphology and that other bovids have independently evolved less cursorial morphology that is more similar to cervids. This study shows that parallel ecomorphological trends can be identified in multiple families of artiodactyls, as well as within artiodactyl groups. This further suggests that the calcaneus may be a good indicator of ecology and function in fossil groups that are taxonomically ambiguous or not closely related to living taxa. 39 39

Display all details of Phenotypic integration in feliform carnivores The skeleton is a complex arrangement of anatomical structures that covary to various degrees depending on both intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Among the Feliformia, many species are characterized by predator lifestyles providing a unique opportunity to investigate the impact of highly specialised hypercarnivorous diet on phenotypic integration and shape diversity. To do so, we compared the shape of the skull, mandible, humerus, and femur of species in relation to their feeding strategies (hypercarnivorous versus generalist species) and prey preference (predators of small versus large prey) using three‐dimensional geometric morphometric techniques. Our results highlight different degrees of morphological integration in the Feliformia depending on the functional implication of the anatomical structure, with an overall higher covariation of structures in hypercarnivorous species. The skull and the forelimb are not integrated in generalist species whereas they are in hypercarnivores. These results can potentially be explained by the different feeding strategies of these species. Contrary to our expectations, hypercarnivores display a higher disparity for the skull than generalist species. This is probably due to the fact that a specialisation toward high‐meat diet could be achieved through various phenotypes. Finally, humeri and femora display shape variations depending on relative prey size preference. Large species feeding on large prey tend to have robust long bones due to higher biomechanical constraints. 12 3
Display all details of The influence of estrogen deficiency on the structural and mechanical properties of the rat cortical bone This work describes the changes in the cortical bone of the rat following ovariectomy. We have previously described the unique structure of rat cortical bone, which contains two components: a region with highly organized circumferential-lamellar material and a centrally located region with disordered material. Thisdy evaluates the influence of ovariectomy on these regions separately, using synchrotron based microtomography. Structural features of femoral cortical bone were studied by scanning electron microscopy and synchrotron-based micro-CT. Small cylindrical samples were prepared from the distal shaft of 8 left femora of each group for multi-resolution imaging by monochromatic synchrotron radiation radiography available on BAMline beamline of the BESSY II storage ring of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB). the entire circumferences of the cortex was scanned at a resolution of 4.35 μm effective pixel size, and the protuberance was scanned at an effective pixel size of 1.75 μm. 15 15
