Abstract

These toxodont megaherbivores were endemic to South and Central America during the late Quaternary. Isotopic signatures of 47 toxodont teeth were analysed to reconstruct diet and ancient habitat. Tooth enamel carbon isotope data from 6 regions of South and Central America indicate significant differences in toxodont diet and local vegetation during the late Quaternary
