Humeral Epiphyseal Shape in the Felidae: The Influence of Phylogeny, Allometry, and Locomotion

Walmsley, Anthony; Elton, Sarah; Louys, Julien; Bishop, Laura; Meloro, Carlo

Description

Bone morphology of the cats (Mammalia: Felidae) is influenced by many factors, including locomotor mode, body size, hunting methods, prey size and phylogeny. Here, we investigate the shape of the proximal and distal humeral epiphyses in extant species of
