faunal migration in late-glacial central italy: implications for human resource exploitation.the hunter-gatherer transhumance model presents foragers as specialised hunters of migratory ungulates, which moved seasonally between coastal lowlands and interior uplands. we studied six animal teeth of horse (equus hydruntinus) and red deer (cervus elaphus) from four different archaeological sites: the grotta di vado all'arancio, grotta di settecannelle, grotta polesini and grotta di pozzo, in central italy to test whether the migratory patterns and seasonal variations recorded in their teeth ...200818537188
geographic distribution of an extinct equid (equus hydruntinus: mammalia, equidae) revealed by morphological and genetical analyses of fossils.equus hydruntinus inhabited europe and the middle east for more than 300 000 years. for a long time, palaeontological data failed to place e. hydruntinus into the equid phylogenetic tree, confronted with the fact that it shares primitive equus characters with both zebras and asses, and derived characters with asses and hemiones. however, the study of a recently discovered skull points to a relationship with hemiones. extraction of dna from ancient samples from crimea (e. hydruntinus) and iran (e ...200616780426
