Animals at Burgaz in the classical period from the evidence of faunal remains
Aydın, Mahmut; Summers, Geoffrey; Department of Settlement Archaeology (2004)
For this thesis the animal bones collected from the archaeological excavations at the ancient site of Burgaz have been analyzed for the study of animal exploitation, human diet, social differentiation and the environment of Burgaz and Datça during the Classical Period. Comparison of the results with evidence from other sites to determine the extent to which there might have been local trends in animal husbandry. Because this kind of a research is not common among archaeologists specialising in the classical...
Animal-Mediated Ecosystem Process Rates in Forests and Grasslands are Affected by Climatic Conditions and Land-Use Intensity
Ambarlı, Didem; Simons, Nadja K.; Wehner, Katja; Kaemper, Wiebke; Gossner, Martin M.; Nauss, Thomas; Neff, Felix; Seibold, Sebastian; Weisser, Wolfgang; Bluethgen, Nico (2021-03-01)
Decomposition, vegetation regeneration, and biological control are essential ecosystem functions, and animals are involved in the underlying processes, such as dung removal, seed removal, herbivory, and predation. Despite evidence for declines of animal diversity and abundance due to climate change and land-use intensification, we poorly understand how animal-mediated processes respond to these global change drivers. We experimentally measured rates of four ecosystem processes in 134 grassland and 149 fores...
Animal bones studies on Byzantine city of Amorium
Silibolatlaz, Derya; Pişkin, Evangelia; Department of Settlement Archaeology (2009)
The aim of this study is to identify the preferred animal species at Byzantine city of Amorium and accordingly to find the spatial relationship between context and the purpose of animal use such as dietary habits, workshop activities, possible socioeconomic differentiation and subsistence economy as well as the ecology of Amorium environment. The animal bones were examined in order to determine their species. The identified animal bones were assessed by calculating the frequencies of the each species. Thus,...
