Try patterns

The models obtained through food tests on domestic mammals (sheep or pigs) cannot be directly transposed to fossil records. In fact, food tests cannot reproduce the very great diversity and complexity of chemical, physical and biomechanical properties of the various foods that make up the diet of a given species.

Exploring present-day wild communities is therefore an essential step before studying fossils. For this, various opportunities were seized in order to constitute real case studies which constitute milestones for our scientific community.
