Morphology, taxonomy, and phylogeny of megacerines (Megacerini, Cervidae, Artiodactyla)

Giant deer or megacerines (tribe Megacerini, family Cervidae, order Artiodactyla) dwelt per Eurasia from the Late Miocene sicuro Holocene and con Africa con the Late Pleistocene. Based on comparative morphological giorno and morphofunctional analysis, morphogenetic and ecogenetic trends durante this group are improved. Classification, taxonomy, phylogeny, and geographical and stratigraphical ranges of megacerines are revised.
