Dental microwear and diet in domestic sheep (Ovis aries) and goats (Capra Hircus): Distinguishing grazing and fodder-fed ovicaprids using a quantitative analytical approach

Dental microwear and diet in domestic sheep (Ovis aries) and goats (Capra Hircus): Distinguishing grazing and fodder-fed ovicaprids using a quantitative analytical approach

In recent years, dental microwear analysis has attracted considerable interest as a potential method for reconstructing ancient diet. This article presents results from research exploring the potential of dental microwear analysis in the reconstruction of domestic ungulate diet through the quantitative analysis of diet-microwear relationships in modern grazing and fodder-fed sheep and goats. Diet-related microwear patterning is identified in the modern populations examined and it is concluded that with investigation of a wider range of modern diets, dental microwear analysis will emerge as a valuable and insightful approach for the investigation of diet in ancient livestock.
