Výživa u australopitéků

Tomáš Janoušek

Abstrakt

Metody zabývající se rekonstrukcí výživy předků člověka se opírají o fosilní záznam, nabízející ekologické souvislosti. Tento materiál lze srovnávat s recentními organismy a modelovými situacemi. Každá z metod osvětluje část spektra poznání jak vlastností stravy, která se nacházela v konkrétním prostředí a byla určitým způsobem využívána, tak vlastností skeletu, jenž je adaptován na získávání specifické stravy. Mnohá omezení při aplikování metod na velmi staré a fragmentární vzorky znesnadňují interpretaci a vedou k mnohdy obecným závěrům, ale přesto přináší cenná data, která s postupně se zlepšujícími technologickými možnostmi rozkrývají historii našich dávných předků a formování dnešních lidí.
