21 p, 2.9 MB Why ruminating ungulates chew sloppily : biomechanics discern a phylogenetic pattern / Zhou, Zupeng (Guilin University of Electronic Technology.

There is considerable debate regarding whether mandibular morphology in ungulates primarily reflects phylogenetic affinities or adaptation to specific diet. In an effort to help resolve this debate, we use three-dimensional finite element analysis (FEA) to assess the biomechanical performance of mandibles in eleven ungulate taxa with well-established but distinct dietary preferences.

11 p, 2.6 MB Cranial biomechanics in basal urodeles: the Siberian salamander (Salamandrella keyserlingii) and its evolutionary and developmental implications / Zhou, Zupeng (Guilin University of Electronic Technology. School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering) ; Fortuny Terricabras, Josep (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Marcé Nogué, Jordi (University of Hamburg. Centrum für Naturkunde) ; Skutschas, Pavel P. (Saint Petersburg State University. Department of Vertebrate Zoology)
Developmental changes in salamander skulls, before and after metamorphosis, afect the feeding capabilities of these animals. How changes in cranial morphology and tissue properties afect the function of the skull are key to decipher the early evolutionary history of the crown-group of salamanders. [...]
