Megaloceros



Megaloceros

Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Mammalia
  Order Artiodactyla
  Family Cervidae
  Genus Megaloceros
Megaloceros is an extinct genus of deers that lived in Eurasia between the late Pliocene epoch and the late Pleistocene epoch, between about 2 million and 11,000 years ago. The best known species of the genus is Megaloceros giganteus which is popularly known as the "Irish Elk".

For the most part Megaloceros were large animals, for example Megaloceros giganteus was nearly 7 feet (2.1 meters) tall at the shoulder, and had antlers that were as much as 12 feet (3.7 meters) from tip to tip. There were however some smaller species of Megaloceros, and in particular species living in Mediterranean islands such as Corsica and Sardinia were prone to dwarfism, and stood less than 3 feet (1 meter) tall at the shoulder.

Megaloceros Timeline:



Megaloceros were herbivorous (plant-eating) mammals that lived between 2 million and 11,000 years ago

Megaloceros were herbivorous (plant-eating) mammals that lived between 2 million and 11,000 years ago

Product Description:
Cancer care is undergoing a shift from a ‘one-size-fits all’ approach to more personalised medicine. One way of personalising cancer treatments is through biomarkers: molecules or biochemical changes found in the patient’s tissues and body fluids. This book reflects upon the promise of cancer biomarkers and asks questions such as: How may the complexity of cancer biology impede the robustness of biomarkers in the clinic? How should one draw the line between the various sub-groups of patients for personalised treatment? How can one evaluate the cost-effectiveness and fairness of personalised cancer treatments? By bringing together authors from the fields of science and technology studies, medical ethics and philosophy, health economics and oncology, the book aims to give a critical yet accessible overview of some of the key social, ethical and economic issues that surround cancer biomarkers. “The book should be required reading for oncologists, medical students, graduate students and especially for those who make policy decisions regarding the use and reimbursement of cancer biomarkers.” – Bruce Zetter, Charles Nowiszewski Professor of Cancer Biology in the Department of Surgery, Harvard Medical School

Late Pleistocene Deer Fossils from Corbeddu Cave (BAR international series)

Product Description:
Corbeddu cave on the island of Sardinia contains Late Pleistocene sediments containing numerous fossils of a common species of deer. Evidence of human activities was also found which is unusual as a Late Pleistocene island fauna is not supposed to be asscoaited with humans, as they were supposed, until recently to have colonized islands not earlier than the Holocene. Analysis of the assemblages, presented in this study, provided detailed information about the microstratigraphy of the site, which has been reconstructed by using a newly developed computer program. The combination of all taphonomic information makes it possible to reconstruct the nature of the site formation processes and Hofmeijer argues that the assemblages cannot have been formed by natural processes alone. Indeed the Corbeddu cave differs from mainland assemblages to such an extent that the study suggests that the bones were a by product of feeding but were also used as tools.
