Éléments de distinction des portions pétreuses de temporal d'Ovis aries et de Capra hircus ; applications des caractères à la distinction de quelques autres Caprinae (Capra ibex, Rupicapra rupicapra)

Abstract : Distinctive features of Ovis aries and Capra hircus petrosal part of temporal bone: application of the features to the distinction of other caprinae (Capra ibex, Rupicapra rupicapra). In this paper, the authors highlight the morphometric features allowing the distinction between the petrous part of the temporal bone of some Caprinae, with a particular consideration of sheep (Ovis aries) and goat (Capra hircus), in association with some specific features of ibex (Capra ibex) and chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra). The authors also consider the implication of the study of petrous bones for these particular taxa in zooarchaeological and palaeontological analysis, especially for post-pleistocene faunal assemblages: identification of domesticated and wild forms, domestication geographic areas, chronological extension of the domestication process; death age estimation for curves of mortality...
