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

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