15 p, 3.6 MB Bone histology provides insights into the life history mechanisms underlying dwarfing in hipparionins / Orlandi Oliveras, Guillem (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Nacarino Meneses, Carmen (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Köhler, Meike (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Size shifts may be a by-product of alterations in life history traits driven by natural selection. Although this approach has been proposed for islands, it has not yet been explored in continental faunas. [...]

7 p, 2.1 MB First fossil evidence for the advance of replacement teeth coupled with life history evolution along an anagenetic mammalian lineage / Jordana Comín, Xavier (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Marín Moratalla, Miren Nekane (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Moncunill Solé, Blanca (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Bover, Pere (Institut Mediterrani d’Estudis Avançats) ; Alcover, Josep Antoni (Institut Mediterrani d’Estudis Avançats) ; Köhler, Meike (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Institució Catalana de Recerca i Estudis Avançats
In mammals that grow up more slowly and live longer, replacement teeth tend to appear earlier in sequence than in fast growing mammals. This trend, known as ‘Schultz's Rule’, is a useful tool for inferring life histories of fossil taxa. [...]

12 p, 2.3 MB Reconstructing molar growth from enamel histology in extant and extinct Equus / Nacarino Meneses, Carmen (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Jordana Comín, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Orlandi Oliveras, Guillem (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Köhler, Meike (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The way teeth grow is recorded in dental enamel as incremental marks. Detailed analysis of tooth growth is known to provide valuable insights into the growth and the pace of life of vertebrates. Here, we study the growth pattern of the frst lower molar in several extant and extinct species of Equus and explore its relationship with life history events. [...]

23 p, 30.3 MB Histological variability in the limb bones of the Asiatic wild ass and its significance for life history inferences / Nacarino Meneses, Carmen (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Jordana Comín, Xavier (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Köhler, Meike (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The study of bone growth marks (BGMs) and other histological traits of bone tissue provides insights into the life history of present and past organisms. Important life history traits like longevity or age at maturity, which could be inferred from the analysis of these features, form the basis for estimations of demographic parameters that are essential in ecological and evolutionary studies of vertebrates.

Els investigadors Meike Köhler i Salvador Moyà, de l'Institut Català de Paleontologia (ICP-UAB), han donat a conèixer els resultats d'una recerca molt innovadora en el camp de la paleontologia. Mitjançant l'ús de tècniques paleohistològiques han pogut inferir la fisiologia d'espècies extingides. [...]

18 p, 4.9 MB Slow life history and physiological plasticity : survival strategies of a large mammal in a resource-poor environment / Köhler, Meike (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Moyà Solà, Salvador (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia)
Because of their physiological and life history characteristics, mammals exploit adaptive zones unavailable to ectothermic reptiles. Yet, they perform best in energyrich environments because their high and constant growth rates and their sustained levels of resting metabolism require continuous resource supply. [...]

La mida corporal (o el seu proxy: pes corporal) té una posició central en la immensa web de variables biològiques interdependents d'un organisme. Mostra correlació amb moltes característiques fisiològiques, morfològiques, comportamentals, ecològiques i de life history, i, per tant, afecta a l'aptitud biològica dels individuals i, en última instància, a la biologia i evolució de les espècies.

Body size (or its proxy: body mass) has a central position in the colossal web of interdependent biological variables of an organism. It shows correlation with lots of physiological, morphological, behavioral, ecological and life history features, and, thus, it affects the fitness of individuals and, ultimately, the biology and evolution of species.

Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia
El estudio de las life histories es de vital importancia porque proporciona evidencias sobre las condiciones ecológicas, biodiversidad, demografía, vulnerabilidad y otros muchos aspectos de la biología de las especies. [...]
Bone histology is a widely used tool to reconstruct vertebrate life histories, either by analysing primary bone tissue or by counting the number of growth marks (skeletochronology). However, it has long been considered that endotherms, unlike ectotherms, display a continuous or noncyclical bone growth, disabling bone histology for life history inferences in mammals. [...]
