Post-mortem alteration of diet-related enamel surface textures through artificial biostratinomy : a tumbling experiment using mammal teeth

Katrin Böhm, Daniela Winkler, Thomas M. Kaiser & Thomas Tütken
In the fossil record, teeth are often all that remains of a fossil organism. Dental microwear texture analysis (DMTA) is a common proxy for diet using dental wear features at the μm-scale, enabling comparative and quantitative assessments of various feeding traits in extant and extinct species. In extinct species, original dietrelated dental wear features may be overprinted by post-mortem alteration including fluvial transport. Here we experimentally investigate the effects of mechanical alteration on diet-related 3D...
