taphonomy of the assemblage.
Main research interests: Plio-Pleistocene fossil assemblages and faunal analysis, vertebrate taphonomy, Human evolution and the archeology of the earliest humans.
If collagen loss materially influences the physical properties of the bone, then temperature may have a dominant role to play in bone taphonomy.
plant taphonomy and post-depositional alterations are recorded for each unit in the Access database and are presented in Table 4 in this report.
The condition of individual specimens can be exploited to aid in establishing the taphonomy of the assemblage.
