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. [...]

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. [...]

El estudio de life histories proporciona información sobre la biología y ecología de las especies, incluyendo las condiciones ecológicas de su ecosistema, su biodiversidad, su demografía y su vulnerabilidad. [...]
The study of life histories provides valuable insights into many aspects of a species' biology and ecology, including the ecological conditions of its ecosystem, its biodiversity, its demography and its vulnerability to extinction. [...]
