Description of project:
Isolated teeth might be quite difficult to identify on morphological grounds alone. We propose therefore a training programme in the study of enameloid microstructure to help differentiate between different clades of elasmobranchs, namely Batoidea, Galea, Squalea and Hybodontiformes. The project will be based primarily on the study of fossil teeth, but may be performed on teeth from modern species as well. Trainees are welcome to bring their own shark teeth (fossil or recent) for study.
Duration of training:
9 – 28 January 2012
