Phylogenetic topology mapped onto dietary ecospace reveals multiple pathways in the evolution of the herbivorous niche in African Bovidae

Louys, Julien; Faith, J. Tyler


Understanding the evolutionary history of the herbivore niche within African bovids has traditionally relied on examining anatomical adaptations to diet,particularly those related to digestive strategy. More recently, mesowear and stable isotope analyses have been used to great effect to reconstruct dietarypreferences. We use these dietary proxies to construct a morphology-free dietary ecospace and examine the topology of the phylogenetic relationships ofAfrican bovids mapped onto this...[Show more]
