... niches coexist, one of these taxa will either outcompete the other or they will partition their niches to exploit different resources (Hardin 1960 ). Niche partitioning studies in fossil ungulates are commonly carried out through a reconstruction of diet using methods similar to those implemented here...

... macrofossil analysis archaeology Archaeology often relies on tools associated with food procurement (e.g. projectile points and ground stone) or organic materials recovered from hearths or middens to answer questions related to diet. However, these items often have complex depositional histories...

... communities. What archaeocyaths fed on is unknown, but is usually assumed to be bacteria, as these are important to the diet of extant sponges (Kruse et al. 1995 ; Debrenne and Zhuravlev 1997 ). Modern sponges can feed on the whole size range of particles that can enter through their pores (ostia), albeit...

... such material. Herein, we regard coleoids with an opportunistic diet as the most likely producers of the aptychi-bearing regurgitalites. This is based on finds of aptychi in the stomachs of the two coleoids Plesioteuthis and Trachyteuthis. They were likely fast, highly manoeuvrable swimmers. Both share a strong...

The omnivorous diets and climbing/swimming abilities of procyonids may have increased their chances for a successful over-water dispersal relative to other carnivorans, further...

In addition to changes in diet, these ungulates, specifically...

... with regard to their ecology; and identifying the diet of these species will improve our understanding of not only their ecologies, but also of past environments. Recent research has found that cranial morphology among kangaroos and wallabies corresponds with foraging behaviors and mechanical properties...

...-targeted adsorbent, on broilers (young chickens) fed a ZEA-contaminated diet. Broilers were subjected to one of three treatments for a period of 42 days: a basal diet (control group), a ZEA-contaminated diet, and a ZEA-contaminated diet supplemented with 1 g/kg of MPal. Blood was collected for serum...

This evidence complements the paleoenvironmental reconstructions in the studied localities; for the northern samples, open prairies composed...

... to a variety of lifestyles, many of them only partly reliant on flight, and adapted to tackle a range of diets in varied environments (see Witton 2013 for a review). In addition to these functional and taphonomic investigations, rare pterosaur fossils have helped shed light on their place in Mesozoic food...

...) that may have caused shifts in feeding ecology preceding death. In these instances, dental microwear, which reflects feeding ecology in a narrow window of time, may provide a biased view of diet. Mesowear, another dental-wear proxy based on the morphology of worn cusps, requires macroscopic amounts...
