Abstract - We undertake a comparative mammalian zoogeographic analysis with the aim of revealing the extent to which the Dmanisi Early Pleistocene large mammal assemblage resembles, at the genus level, African, Arabian, and Eurasian localities of similar age. The inclusion of Old World Pliocene a...

Sumatran Rhino
Diverse assemblages of seed-dispersing megafauna once existed in Asian rainforests, but are now almost solely represented by elephants. Asia’s rhinos persist in remnant, ecologically-extinct populations and the most threatened of these is the Sumatran rhino, Dicerorhinus sumatrensis. To underst...

The rhino population has dropped over 50% in the last 50 years due to poaching for their strong and durable horns. But where does this strength and durability come from? Unlike other animal horns, rhino horns do not have a bony core; instead, they are made completely out of keratin, the same mate...
