Ecological correlates to cranial morphology in Leporids (Mammalia, Lagomorpha)

Kraatz, Brian P.; Sherratt, Emma; Bumacod, Nicholas; Wedel, Mathew J.


The mammalian order Lagomorpha has been the subject of many morphometric studies aimed at understanding the relationship between form and function as it relates to locomotion, primarily in postcranial morphology. The leporid cranial skeleton, however, may also reveal information about their ecology, particularly locomotion and vision. Here we investigate the relationship between cranial shape and the degree of facial tilt with locomotion (cursoriality, saltation, and burrowing) within crown...[Show more]
