Skull and teeth of sahelo-sudanian rodents
identification guide of skeletal remains

Identification of rodents' cranial remains (e.g., as they can be found
in owl pellets) is important for taxonomy and biogeography studies.

The web page gives access to the cranial remains of the main rodents species.
The geographic area covered is the same as in Granjon and Duplantier 2009 (see
information 035-Rodents from Sahelo-Sudanian Africa).

The content exposed must be considered as a working tool only. It summarizes
most part of the drawings already published, as described in the 'literature used'
section of this web page, but not always easily accessible.
